eeggi at Infonortics Search Conference

January 19, 2009

The Boston Search Engine Meeting, operated by Infonortics Ltd., continues to be a must-attend event. Several of the search-related conferences have fallen on their nose. One is a marketers’ dream. SEO (search engine optimization) experts explain how to get a high Google ranking. A few non-marketers attend but find the audiences indifferent to anything but short cuts to Google goodness. Another conference confuses attendees so no one knows who is speaking where or when. Not much hope for shows like that, I fear. Another floundering fish is a huge event focused on everything from scanning to search. Last year, before the meltdown, attendance at most sessions was–ah, how shall I say–sparse. Another candidate for retirement as well. But the Infonortics show keeps on delivering a solid program, attracts motivated attendees, and thankfully does not run a carnival of booths. At one show in the fall, Google pulled its staff and left an empty booth for half of the trade show’s hours. Now that’s a nice site. An empty Google booth. The saving grace was the fact that few people were in the exhibit hall. This addled goose flapped through and then went to a client’s office. The show was underwhelming.

I just learned that the Infonortics conference in April (more information is here) will feature a presentation by eeggi’s “advisor” Frank Bandach. eeggi has an interesting PowerPoint making the rounds of people who cover search and content processing. I viewed it and want to get more information about this company.

eeggi said here:

eeggi is the world’s first mathematic-based search engine, capable of finding results based on CONCEPT instead of just Text. Text-based engines treat words such as “photo” and “photograph” as if they meant completely different things; and yet words such as “banana” (fruit), and “banana” (crazy) as if they meant absolutely identical things. But eeggi’s concept-driven allows it to retrieve superior and conceptually equivalent results such as: 1-Synonyms (identical meaning), 2-Similarities (similar meaning), 3-Conclusive and deductive results, 4-Multiple languages, 5-Tabulates words with multiple meanings, 6-Directional conceptuality 7-Less irrelevance, 8-User controls to search magnitude.

The eeggi Web site is understated. You can find it here. Some canned demos are here. I will learn more in April 2009. Infonortics publishes my Google monographs. I will be on the program as well, and I am doing a tutorial in which some of the new Google technology will be discussed.
