Digging a Little Deeper

Semantic search combines natural language processing and computer technology to help people learn and share information quickly. How it is used and the different types of applications seems endless. After a car accident and subsequent coma ended up leaving one woman having to relearn how to do everything, she saw a need and built a semantic search company to discover the not-so-obvious information.

The technology behind Declara helps people discover esoteric and hard-to-find information. Declara has been used in education, pharmaceutical, and manufacturing industries, where a lack of knowledge transfer between employees could result in death. Tech Investor News brought this information to our attention in their article, “Semantic search will help find hidden knowledge in education and more.”

Semantic technology continues to grow and expand its uses. Search is just one of those. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system, specializes in complex coding, tagging, and indexing.

The Semantic Approach

August 19, 2014  
Posted in News, search, semantic

The possibilities and limitations of semantic search continue to be evaluated as more and more enterprises and applications utilize the technology. Semantic search can be challenging to understand, let alone implement. If all your experience of search engine use has been the Boolean search of the past, then this is a new world for you to explore.

The good news is that while semantic search may be difficult to implement at the Google level, for the end user it has actually become a little easier. This topic was inspired by the post on David Amerland’s blog, “Semantic Search – Three Basic Principles You Need to Know About.”

The Evolution of Search

August 6, 2014  
Posted in News, search, semantic

Search has seen some dramatic changes in recent years, and most attribute that to semantic technology. It has become the normal expectation for users that a search engine would understand inference in natural language versus the query model used for so long. This interesting information came from Semantic Web in their post, “The Changing Landscape of Search Centers On the Semantic Web.”

This shift in search has dramatic implications for marketers, consumers, technology developers, and content creators. Who is to say what the future will bring and what the next “new thing” will be? Search has reached a level of sophistication that few expected.

Understanding how semantic search works is always a benefit. Many tools are being built on the concept of natural language processing and understanding to make discovery more meaningful by semantically enriching content. However, it does require special knowledge of terminology and coding to reduce errors. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system and specializing in complex coding, tagging, and indexing, provides a range of services that deliver tag integrity.

Linguamatics has launched I2E Semantic Enrichment to provide increased return on investment in enterprise search systems and radically improve speed to insight. MarketWatch brought this interesting news to us in their article, “Text Analytics Company Linguamatics Boosts Enterprise Search with Semantic Enrichment.”

What is I2E Semantic Enrichment exactly? It is used within an existing enterprise search deployment to enrich the current data, in other words, to make it more discoverable and provide more relevant search results.

I2E uses natural language processing (NLP) technology to achieve this, combined with a range of other strategies including application of ontologies, taxonomies, thesauri, rule-based pattern matching, and disambiguation based on context.

Even with semantic technology powering search, information management for any type of business is critical for fast, easy, and comprehensive findability.

Searching and Finding

Do the current methods of searching the Internet actually have an expiration date? The scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) believe that just may be the case. Their goal is to revolutionize the discovery, organization, and presentation of results. Network World brought this news to us in their article, “DARPA seeks the Holy Grail of search engines.”

DARPA’s Memex program is designed to develop software that will enable domain-specific indexing of public web content and domain-specific search capabilities. The technologies developed in the program will also provide the mechanisms for content discovery, information extraction, information retrieval, user collaboration, and other areas needed to address distributed aggregation, analysis, and presentation of web content.

Semantic technology continues to grow and expand its uses. Search is just one of those. Access Innovations, developer of the M.A.I. machine-assisted indexing system, specializes in complex coding, tagging, and indexing.

The Semantics of Search

July 15, 2014  
Posted in News, search, semantic

Semantic search continues to develop and be even more integral to information management, but how does it affect your efforts to identify and employ keywords? This is assuming that keywords even matter anymore. How does it help make your content findable? This interesting topic was found on Brandpoint in their article, “Are Keywords Necessary in a Semantic Search World?

Semantic search returns much more specific answers to search queries, rather than the previously deployed hierarchical list of approximations Google guessed the user meant. In the pre-Hummingbird days, content was created around keywords, which were then strategically placed in the hopes of attracting links back to the website, increasing its rank. The more links you had, the more confidence search engines placed in the trustworthiness of the website, and this was then reflected in the search engine results pages for the website — producing more visitors and ultimately more revenue.

Even with semantic technology powering search, information management for any type of business is critical for fast, easy, and comprehensive findability. One key way to ensure this is through a solid taxonomy, based on standards, built by someone with years of experience in the field.
