Linguistic Agents Unveils RoboCrunch

August 21, 2008

Linguistic Agents, based in Jerusalem, has rolled out, a semantic search engine. You can read the company news release here. Like Powerset and Hakia, Linguistic Agents’ technology makes it possible to locate information by asking the system a question. This platform enables software to respond and act upon natural human language in the most intuitive fashion for users.

As of August 21, 2008, the system operates with two functions:

  1. Natural Language Inquiries are transformed to Advanced Search Queries
  2. Results are semantically sorted by relevance.

The developer–founded in 1999–plans to change the present method of Web Navigation by using its advanced semantic technology to better understand user’s information requests. The company says, “Linguistic Agents has developed an integrative language platform that is based on the most current research in the field of theoretical linguistics.”

I have written about this company before. Check out the demo. Let me know your impressions.

    Virginia Potter,

    I used to index medieval sermons in Latin. I recall the passage, but I’m not sure
    how the citation maps to my quackery about search. Elucidate, please.
