April 15, 2011 – LexisNexis has debuted their new semantic search “brain”. The next-generation semantic search technology identifies the meaning of multiple concepts within a single search query to help users zero in on core concepts faster and make fewer revisions to their search queries.

This interesting and very applicable topic was found on Science 2.0 in their article, “LexisNexis Unveils Next Generation of IP Research Technology with New Semantic Search “Brain”. The technology will power LexisNexis TotalPatent™ and LexisNexis PatentOptimizer™.

The semantic search technology enhances its ability to identify multiple concepts contained within a single search query. This evolution of technology is happening more frequently than ever and will most assuredly make the future projects even more exciting.
