Introduction To Wibidata And Kiji
"Introduction to Wibidata/Kiji - Implementing personalized search using Kiji and Solr"
Kiji is an open source framework that allows developers to build big data applications (focused around personalization and recommendations) on top of HBase and Hadoop. Solr is an open source enterprise grade search engine that makes it easy for developers to quickly deploy a high quality search engine. In this talk, I will demonstrate how the combination of the two can help implement personalized search that can also respond to user interactions in "real-time".
