The act of search continues to evolve and grow as technology does the same. Semantic technology takes search to a new level. It demands that the software understand the information in the way it was intended. For software to comprehend the meaning behind what a human has put to text requires a certain amount of artificial intelligence.

Search Engine Watch brought this information to our attention in their article, “Semantic Search in 2025.” As algorithms continue to learn and artificial intelligence continues to advance, what does this mean for search in the future? Some predict that the stumbling blocks of today will be history as intention is better understood by the technology. This can result in a comprehensive findability that has the ability to hone in on the information you are seeking immediately.

We have come so far in search technology, but it is easy to see that there are many more milestones ahead.
