Semantic Search Done Right

Someone gets it...

Sigma, Semantic Information Mash-up, from our friends at DERI in Galway. This is a glimpse into the power of semantic search. It will not look like regular search. It will not look like Google. It will not be a simple ranking of keyword matches. It will not, in short, be one dimensional.

Sematic web, the web of data, is multi-dimensional. The days of one-dimensional search ranking are drawing to a close. I don't know what the UI will ultimately look like, but when we finally get there you will search by starting with an idea, and from that idea you move in one direction or another to other related ideas. Your sources will be ranked according to relevance and reliability. You will find new, related concepts. Keyword homonyms will no longer be an issue. This is where the web is going.
