Searching for information and knowledge on the Web is a routine activity we engage in daily. Information retrieval and text analytics algorithms and tools underpin these activities. Accordingly, there has been increasing demand for information professionals and data scientists fluent in these technologies in recent years. In this session, University of Illinois faculty member Halil Kilicoglu will discuss career paths in the fields of information retrieval and text analytics, and how an information sciences education can help with these career paths.
