David Seuss to Speak at Data Summit 2018

David Seuss, CEO of Northern Light, will present “The Path to Cognitive Search” on Tuesday, May 22nd, from 12:00-12:45 at the 2018 Data Summit in Boston, MA.

Presentation summary:

Search is not a new activity for most of us, but cognitive search adds new dimensions and functionalities that enhance the UX.

How Machine Learning Changes the Search Paradigm

Since 1994, when the first search engine was deployed, search has worked like this: A user entered search terms in a field, hit the search button, got a list of documents called search results, reviewed the list to find a few that might be relevant, downloaded one document, manually scanned it to see if it’s on point, and then returned to the list and continued the process until frustrated or out of time. Users are overwhelmed, tired, and wish they had a personal search assistant. They want to dispense with search altogether. They demand to know why the machine can’t just read all those documents for us and tell us what it finds. Well, now it can! Machine learning can change the entire search paradigm.


The Data Summit conference is a unique event that brings together IT practitioners and business stakeholders from all types of organizations. Top corporations, government agencies, and public institutions gather together to learn about the leading technologies and strategies for succeeding in this increasingly data-driven world.
