Title:
The Power of Structured Data on the Web

Abstract:
I will talk about how structured data is changing the way data is being 
located on the Web. The first one is the ability to capture users' intent 
and display more relevant information thereby reaching the long tail 
of users and content-suppliers. This trend is observed in GoogleBase and 
Yahoo! Shortcuts where both queries and data are structured and enable 
a more interactive search. The second one is related to enabling community 
search on the Web 2.0. Nowadays, users of Flickr, YouTube and Yahoo! 
Groups supply structured content, organize it, and search it. I will 
discuss how structure-awareness when representing users, data and 
communities is shaping Web search and some of the challenges that are 
implied by this trend.
