A one-sided article on an important topic-- true Industry is desperate but it is also very greedy-- they will easily give equity for VC investment but won't share anything with university and researchers -- they want all their research for free.... companies do not need to learn have to form mutually beneficial partnership?
Lack of industry's perspective on how to effectively engage faculty and willingness to reinvest a very small part of benefits that can be reinvested to benefit students (or faculty research) is one of the biggest challenge I have seen [but yes, universities also need to put least amount of friction in making tech transfer possible]
There are some interesting points about dealing with ambiguous (imprecise?) query, colloquial language, etc. Future computation (not just search) is going to focus more on these. Some of us have talked about uncertain, imprecise (approximate) and incomplete information for quite some time now - it appears these challenges are receiving the attention they deserve and our capacity to deal with these is seeing concrete progress in recent times.

http://searchengineland.com/faq-all-about-the-new-google-rankbrain-algorithm-234440 . Interesting read.
My take on top five signals: PageRank, User's Local Context/History, Rank Brain, Knowledge Graph, Performance of results (clicks by users) of previous results on the same search.
The part of the article on Knowledge Graph and "things not string" may suggest to some that this was something that was invented in 2012: not true (commercial product in 2000, patent filed that year; WorldModel/Ontology in Graph/RDF-like representation ~ Knowledge Graph: details: http://amitsheth.blogspot.com/2014/09/15-years-of-semantic-search-and.html
