* Large-scale indexing and retrieval using MapReduce and Hadoop.
* Effective retrieval using a wide variety of models, in addition to advanced term-proximity, field retrieval and rich query language functionality.
* Fast integrated Cranfield-style evaluation tools.
* Extending Terrier into new research areas, e.g. evaluating new tasks using crowdsourcing.
