Restaurant Search

golang kansei keio university mit license research search sql web

This project is a prototype semantic search web application that I developed as part of my master’s thesis at Keio University. I presented the results of my research at iiWAS 2015 in Brussels, Belgium. My article, titled Restaurant Search with Predictive Multispace Queries was published in the in the ACM International Conference Proceeding Series.

You can get a better understanding of the goals of this experimental search system by referring to the overview presentation; it provides a brief overview of the points covered in my article. Although I no longer make the prototype accessible on the web, it is easy to get it up and running locally by following the instructions below.
