So I guess its been a busy day for me posting. I tend to go in spurts, really.
Here are some resources I wanted to make sure people knew about:
I found something pretty cool today, an online draft of Introduction to Information Retrieval by Manning, Raghavan, and Schutze. Two of the same authors as the Foundations of Statistical NLP I recommended yesterday. According to the site the book is scheduled to be published in 2007. It looks like they have drafts of about half the chapters online right now. Very interesting reading from what I see so far.
For IR practitioners I ran across a relatively new book:
Information Retrieval : Algorithms and Heuristics by Grossman and Frieder (2004).
I mentioned yesterday the CS276a course on IR, well there is CS276b on Text Mining which is very relevant to what do we do here at GS (as well as the other SEs) that people shouldn't miss out on.
And lastly if you want yet more resources there is always InformationRetrieval.org.
There is some fodder for a future post in Lecture 7 of CS276B, specifically, slide 3 the "Evolution of Search Engines". Stay tuned.
So much to read, so little time!
