Winners of the Search Industry Awards 2016

  • Most promising start-up of 2016 goes to ContextFlow, for their work on developing and commercialising the radiology image search technology developed in the EU FP7 Khresmoi project as the product Radiology Explorer. The certificate was presented to Markus Krenn, Quality Manager at ContextFlow.
  • Best Search Project of 2016 goes to Rich Miller, Todd Frascone and Serena Wellen of Lexis Nexis for their work on Search Term Maps. This project is the culmination of years of research into how legal professionals glean information from documents within query results. It displays query-term hit-patterns from the most relevant parts of each document allowing users to quickly scan results lists and documents for relevant results and home in on the best case for their issue.
  • Best presentation at Search Solutions goes to Frederic Fol Leymarie of DynAikon Ltd, for a talk titled “Human Visual Perception + Computer Vision to provide greater User Control for Shape-based Search”. Frederic gave us an intriguing insight to his work on the application of perception/psychophysics and computer vision to the problem of indexing and retrieval of objects in static and dynamic video scenes.
