Southend Search Engine Talk
Here's the slides for the talk on making search engines. I gave this talk in Southend at the Raspberry Pi Jam on the 21 February 2015 see: http://musicinsouthend.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/southend-raspberry-jam.htm....
I didn't put this into the slides, apparently, but the reference book for this is http://www.hive.co.uk/book/modern-information-retrieval-the-concepts-and... it's expensive and probably in university libraries.
I'll probably prepare a more refined version, since this is the first presentation and the talk was prepared during a very busy period. At that stage, I may include pagerank: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank as an example of how to put a value on search results.
My email is in the slides, somewhere at the front. Also, the slides can be re-used on the basis of attribution: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Creative_Commons_license#Attribution Feel free to feedback also, it'll improve the slides if I give the talk again!
