Cognition Launches New Linguistic Search Engine

Cognition Launches New Linguistic Search Engine
Barbara Quint writes:
Every searcher's fear is that a search will produce too little of what you want or too much of what you don't want. And even if you get a nice collection of the right stuff, is it all the right stuff out there or does it omit things you need to see? In technical terms, does your search strategy balance precision and recall effectively? Linguistic and semantic search engines have long held out the promise of helping computers "understand" concepts, rather than just search for terms. Cognition Technologies (www.cognition.com) has launched CognitionSearch, a linguistic search engine that supports ontology, morphology, and synonymy, tapping one of the world's largest computational dictionaries. Initially, the company will market a vertical enterprise service for legal litigation support and for life science and health research. It also offers an open Web service (www.cognitionsearch.com) to demonstrate the technology as applied to MEDLINE and PubMed content, to judicial and legislative sources, and to political blog content.
