Surrounded by millions of bits of information, in today’s digital world we are on a knowledge discovery quest. On this quest semantic search is key. It helps us explore connections and gather information from seemingly disparate sources.
Neither text, nor any type of content could be exhaustively defined by their exact textual representation. They both are more of a fabric of relationships. Not just a mere sum of exact words and phrases, but a network of connected entities.
On a more practical note, semantic search is about efficient enterprise content usage. As one of the biggest losses of knowledge happens due to inefficient management and retrieval of information.
The ability to search for meaning not for keywords brings us a step closer to efficient information management.
If semantic search had a separate icon from the one traditional search has it would have been a microscope.
Because semantic search is looking at content as if through the magnifying lens of a microscope. The technology helps us explore large amounts of systems and the connections between them.
Sharpening our ability to join the dots, semantic search enhances the way we look for clues and compare correlations on our knowledge discovery quest.
The way we access information is transcending. Learn how in our latest presentation: The Knowledge Discovery Quest
