At the ‘Search Technology Summit 2008’, the search software technology conference held in the Hotel Intercontinental on September 2nd, Albert Ahn of Saltlux Inc commented, “With the current search engines the netizen are not able to see the forest for the trees. And Saltlux Inc is ready to launch the new search technology, the ‘topic rank’ for the improvement of this issue.” Albert continued to say that the topic rank will enable the netizen to visually recognize the relationships or connectivity of quantitatively huge amount of information full in the internet.
For example, when a netizen inputs a word ‘BEEF’ in the search window, the monitor show the 2 dimensional display of the related words such as ‘mad cow disease, or BSE’, ‘candlelight rally’ in the form of spider web just under the sear window. It has conceptual difference with current search systems where it shows sentences with the same input ‘word’ from blogs, cafés, or articles.
Netizen can recognize the connectivity with only inputting a certain ‘search word’. Albert explained, “One may recognize through utilization of topic rank without reading any newspaper articles that mad cow disease issue raised when Korean government approved beef import from U.S.A. in partial fulfillment of Korea America FTA and then candlelight rally has happened.”
Mr. Ahn clarifies that a netizen may naturally search in the monitor such words difficult to correctly memorize like ‘Creutzfeldt’, ‘Jacob Disease’, ‘vCJD’ when he searches ‘mad cow disease’ utilizing the topic rank technology. And the relationship or connectivity of each words may easily be understood.
This kind of concept service in under developed and will be launched by several companies including Saltlux Inc. (www.saltlux.com).
