Good afternoon. My name is Nathan Yergler, and I'm Chief Technology Officer at Creative Commons. This afternoon I'm going to talk about a semantic enhanced search engine for education we've been working on called DiscoverEd. It's built on commodity hardware and open source tools, and the software can be used for other domains. I'm going to talk about some approaches we tried and rejected, and give you some information on tools you can use for building your own semantic search without investing in your own server farm.
