Hakia Search Engine
New search engine alert.
I discovered a new search engine that shows promise, at least from its marketing rhetoric. Read below to find out more about Hadkia and its more cognitive approach to search. I love Google, but seeing a search engine do something better is a good feeling.
Hakia is building the Web’s new “meaning-based” (semantic) search engine with the sole purpose of improving search relevancy and interactivity, pushing the current boundaries of Web search. The benefits to the end user are search efficiency, richness of information, and time savings.
The basic promise is to bring search results by meaning match – similar to the human brain’s cognitive skills – rather than by the mere occurrence (or popularity) of search terms. hakia’s new technology is a radical departure from the conventional indexing approach, because indexing has severe limitations to handle full-scale semantic search.
hakia’s capabilities will appeal to all Web searchers – especially those engaged in research on knowledge intensive subjects, such as medicine, law, finance, science, and literature.
Try Hakia and let us know what you think. Keep in mind it is still in beta (8/8/07).
