"Exploiting linguistic annotations in Search."
Automatic linguistic annotations of text can be used today in a number
of ways: to create richer interfaces to the information locked in

and to improve the relevance of the results obtained by the search
engine. I will give an overview of our work in these three areas, and
will highlight the main challenges we encounter and how we are trying
to address them. I will also show several demos exploiting linguistic
annotations for search on Wikipedia (Correlator,
http://correlator.sandbox.yahoo.net/), Yahoo! Answers and financial

Looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona
