Winners of the Search Industry Awards 2016

  • Most promising start-up of 2017 goes to Search|hub by CXP Commerce Experts GmbH for their work on developing and commercialising a system that infuses human understanding into existing search applications by automatically correcting human input and building context around each and every query.
  • Best Search Project of 2017 goes to Elsevier DataSearch. This project is a data search engine that allows scientists and researchers to search for many different data types and formats across a variety of domain-specific and cross-domain institutional data repositories and other data sources. Mark Stanger accepted the award on behalf of Elsevier.
  • Best presentation at Search Solutions goes to Mark Harwood of Elastic, for a talk titled "Tackling toxic content with the elastic stack". Mark gave us an intriguing insight to his work on the application of search technologies to the identification of content that's undesirable, such as hate speech, fake news and extremist promotions.
