Semantic Search Criteria

In Previous posts I mentioned Semantic Search and the starting point for Semantic Search. But as we all agree that search needs some sort of criteria to filter the results. In this post I am going to put down my thoughts on what I see as a criteria for the Semantic Search.

Semantic search is a result of conversation between user (human or machine) and the machine. The conversation is two way where the requester sends out search criteria and machine brings out a possible set of results that matches the criteria. But there is a twist to this process. The search criteria for semantic search is not straightforward like normal search. There are more to the search criteria than a query condition. For Semantic Search:
  1. We need to mention whether the condition must be meet or it is not important to fulfill the condition.
  2. In case there is a contradiction (with another condition) which one would take precedence?
Also the output must contain the relevancy factor with respect to the criterias entered by the user. There should be some sort of indication as how many of optional and additional criterias have been meet.

I am still yet to work out how the criterias will be evaluated against the objects available within the knowledgebase. Will be posting my thoughts on this as I progress further.

Until Next Time....!!!

As I read your blog, I sense that you are part of the leading edge of thinkers as it relates to ontological thinking and matters.

I represent some of those who follow you and try to deploy your advancements. I am part of a company that uses ontologies in its software applications.

You may know of someone who could benefit from association with the following company.

Anyone involved in healthcare IT should be aware ontologically-based, GIS integrated decision support systems as they relate to disease control and disease management.
A small, privately held software company in Colorado which is a specialist in ontological engineering services for the healthcare IT and other industries is currently deploying a system in Africa designed to combat malaria and dengue fever. This system is being deployed for a global health and human services organization and will support complex disease management-related decision-making.
TerraFrame
TerraFrame’s technology team is available to customize their software platform and to use GIS integrated ontologies to create decision support systems for any industry or government needs. They are interested in leveraging to creatively solve complex problems. For more information please contact Ray Hutchins at rh@terraframe.co

Semantic Search is a process and it is used for improving the online search. The semantic web is developing expansion and extension of the web. In this semantics containing the information and data on the web in a distinct manner so that the web can understand and recognize the information in a clear manner so that it can identify requirements and queries of the user.The application of semantic search extends beyond the boundaries of the web with corporate enterprise knowledge extending into multimedia content.
