Semantic Search Engine for PubMed- Microsoft Vs Yahoo Vs Google Vs Oracle in Semantic Web Search
Posted Sep 28 2008 5:21pm
Hakia is a semantic web search engine, so what you might think. The difference is hakia targets legal, financial and Medical web searches. Thye have even licensed its technology to a startup company that summarized information for government and pharmaceutical companies
There is more starting from April 2008 using Hakia you can search Pubmed. Adding more than 10 million abstracts from PubMed to their index and setting up a new site dedicated to searching this content at pubmed.hakia.com. The PubMed content will also be visible in search results on the hakia medical search site and via the main hakia search page
For exmaple my query of microarray software Pubmed returned 1646 results and Hakia 15 some times having too much is not good idea, especially when you are looking for specific text.
It doesnt even stop there, the result also showed me with the option to even add a post so I found a job for part-time employee to work in a microarray lab. This I think is a great tool especially if more people use it you can use the feature to locate people working on similar topic. Ofcourse you can any of the much known social tools like Linkedin
There is still more surprises Evri.com a Paul Allen backed semantic search engine has launched a Beta release in June 24.
Other similar service providers includes TextDigger, Radar NetworksPeer39.com that offers semantic technology in advertising, Gloofi.comTwine, then there is Spock calling itself a vertical search engine for people, usign top-down semantic search. In that sense we can call Google Maps to be using semantic technology though it cant be called a thorough breed in this field
