Search is not new. Finding the data you seek is not a new challenge. How this happens and the tools used to accomplish it, has changed. Business 2 Community brought this interesting information to us in their article, “Brave New World: The Future of Search.”

It’s important to understand the evolution that has happened in search engines themselves. They have been transformed from tools to find content into personal assistants to help you meet your particular needs and desires. Search engines are now one part of the content discovery experience.

There is predictive search, semantic search, social search, and more search engines than we can count. We are nearing the point where the computer would need to be able to figure out what information you need without you needing to ask for it.
