Search has never been more personal, or engaging or sometimes difficult. Properly defining your query is the key to a successful search, and that isn’t always the easiest of tasks. Semantic technology continues to evolve, and as a result search is becoming more comprehensive, effective, and challenging. This interesting topic was brought to us by GCN in their article, “Semantic search: Still more luck than technology.”

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.
