More Intelligent Searching – Part 2

Posted: October 31, 2010 in Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language

One of the next major milestones of searching will be a ‘natural language conversational search engine’.

NL conversational searching will be much different than conventional searching. Today, search engines do not hold context or do any real ‘learning’ from user input.

NL conversational search engines will

  • Parse natural language for meaning
  • Possibly infer context
  • Ask clarifying questions to reduce the number of potential ‘hits’

Think of this style of searching as ‘asking a very smart person who has perfect recall of crawled content’.
