Semantic Search Engine for PubMed- Microsoft Vs Yahoo Vs Google Vs Oracle in Semantic Web Search

Posted Jul 22 2008 8:23pm


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 atpubmed.hakia.com. The PubMed content will also be visible in search results on thehakia medical search siteand via themain 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 meMeet Others who asked same query in PubMed Semantic searchwith the option to even add a post so I found a job forpart-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

Still not convinced of the merits take a look at thecomparison of the search results on new regulatory problems affecting personal genomics companies, in google and Hakia

Semantic search startup Hakia June 19 made itsSyndication Web ServicesAPIs available to search engine marketing or publishing businesses and others that want to provide their users with better ways of finding information. TheXML search option and feed syndication search serviccesare certinaly good

Hakia is offering 30,000 free (and advertising-free) searches per day to early adopters until the partners’ quota is filled.

You can also generate acustom seach boxthat can be added to your website much like the custom google search box .

and yes there is competition toPowersethas launched itsfirst product May 12, a search engine focused on finding articles on Wikipedia. And there is roumor thatMicrosoft will acquire Powerset Semantic Search engine very soon for nothing less but USD 100M

May be because Yahoo is already offering Semantic webs earch usingthrough itsSearchMonkey platform

But there is more than what meets the eye. RememberInterestingly in 2007 June Oracle staked its claim to leadership in the enterprise side ofthe emerging semantic Web space, saying that more than 100 commercial and open-source applications are using its version of the technology. Oracle do offer search called Oracle Secure Enterprise Search. Take a look at theOracle Semantic Technology Centre

Microsoft can also say to be making up for theloss of TripleHop to Oracle,

There is still more surprisesEvri.coma Paul Allen backed semantic search engine has launched a Beta release in June 24.

Other similar service providers includesTextDigger,Radar NetworksPeer39.comthat 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
