You can find more information on the speaker's site:

ElasticSearch is a Lucene-based distributed, highly available, cloud-ready, RESTful full text search engine, written in Java.

ElasticSearch.pm is the Perl interface to ElasticSearch, written and maintained by me.

ElasticSearch really makes full text search easy - unlike most Java apps it is simple to install use and configure. The designer has really made it DWIM.

I intend to talk about the functionality that ElasticSearch provides, how to use it from Perl, and the road map of changes planned for ElasticSearch.pm, including ElasticSearch::QueryBuilder (similar to SQL::Abstract, but for ES) and ElasticSearch::Protocol::Memcached (accessing the ES server using the memcached protocol over TCP, rather than the default slower HTTP protocol).
