eeggi: semantic search in all but (awful) name

In Information industry, Web 2.0 & all that on January 22, 2009 by Alan Lovell Tagged: , , , ,

eeggi (engineered, encyclopedic, global and grammatical identities, apparently) is the world’s first “Information engine”, whatever that is.  Well… “eeggi implements Relational Intelligence for retrieving results based on concept and to respect the words’ proximities and relationships” Sounds rather like just another semantic search engine to me that promises much but are yet to deliver (though one day I’m sure they shall). They don’t, however, mention semantic search. Rather they use their trademarked phrases such as “Relational Intelligence”.

Anyway, unless you’re an investor you can’t try their beta engine. So not much one can say really. Just thought I ought to let you know so you can keep an eye out for it. Awful name though, don’t you think?

By the way, on one of their examples they say how you’d get different results for ‘pretty dog’, ‘cute dog’, ‘gorgeous dog’ etc., which is quite true, but we do all know about the use of tilda (~) in google, don’t we?
