Rising of social networks like Twitter and Facebook has been flooding the web with user-generated contents in the amount that was never seen before. As we become more depending on the social media for daily information gathering and social interaction, we have started to demand more from search engines, such as real time conversations and social connections. Such new environment is forcing search engine technology to evolve.
This presentation will first review the traditional search engine technologies and architecture. Then, we will talk about some of the new architectures for supporting real time search and social search. The last part of the presentation is devoted to discussion of the emerging real time web monitoring system, the cousin of search engine.
