Atiego, a semantic analysis company, has used their skills and technology to make it possible to search the archive of the National Institute of Health’s PubMed library. Ths library consists of more than 400,000 research papers. The search functionality provides a user-friendly graphical interface, so users don’t have to scroll through pages of results.

Gigaom brought this news to our attention in their article, “How Atigeo uses semantics to make search interactive.” For researchers, physicians and other healthcare organizational users, this novel approach makes their endeavors in searching more comprehensive. Users draw clearer and better connections between their data, and the results are specific and useable. Of course, accessing your data is key to achieving solid results, and this extra measure can only enhance that.
