Understanding Search: The Infrastructure, Innovation & Impact of Today’s Search Technology

In an era of information overload, search engines help Internet users find the information they want. Access to this information is a human rights issue as well as an economic one. But search engines are often criticized by businesses frustrated with search engine rankings and by restrictive governments around the world demanding that search results be filtered.

On September 20th, the Computer & Communications Industry Association will host a panel discussion on Internet search and how it impacts businesses, consumers and the Internet as a whole. Complimentary breakfast will be provided.*
