Nordic AI Popup live In search of search - making search engines visible
We also intend to publish the recordings divided as separate sections.
The basis of every search engine is a structured copy of the web. This fundamental infrastructure is very expensive to develop and maintain. Google dominates the search market and has a large influence on all parts of society. Is there a need to challenge its dominance?
We present the current situation and raise the question about who should be responsible for maintaining the search engine indexes.
When: 26 May kl 19.00 to 20.45
