Text data has become pervasive and is found in many different shapes and forms. As the data increases in size and variation, standard models of text and queries are no longer effective or efficient. This departure has led to many interesting models and algorithms for search and data exploration in the past couple of years.

This course studies some of those models and algorithms with an in-depth analysis of the underlying problems they address.
