Semantic Search Engine for PubMed- Microsoft Vs Yahoo Vs Google Vs Oracle in Semantic Web Search

Hakia is a semantic web search engine, so what you might think. The difference is hakia targets legal, financial and Medical web searches. Thye have even licensed its technology to a startup company that summarized information for government and pharmaceutical companies

There is more starting from April 2008 using Hakia you can search Pubmed. Adding more than 10 million abstracts from PubMed to their index and setting up a new site dedicated to searching this content at pubmed.hakia.com. The PubMed content will also be visible in search results on the hakia medical search site and via the main hakia search page

For exmaple my query of microarray software Pubmed returned 1646 results and Hakia 15 some times having too much is not good idea, especially when you are looking for specific text.

It doesnt even stop there, the result also showed me Meet Others who asked same query in PubMed Semantic search with the option to even add a post so I found a job for part-time employee to work in a microarray lab. This I think is a great tool especially if more people use it you can use the feature to locate people working on similar topic. Ofcourse you can any of the much known social tools like Linkedin

Still not convinced of the merits take a look at the comparison of the search results on new regulatory problems affecting personal genomics companies, in google and Hakia

You can also generate a custom seach box that can be added to your website much like the custom google search box .

and yes there is competition to Powerset has launched its

May be because Yahoo is already offering Semantic webs earch using

But there is more than what meets the eye. Remember Interestingly in 2007 June Oracle staked its claim to leadership in the enterprise side of the emerging semantic Web space, saying that more than 100 commercial and open-source applications are using its version of the technology. Oracle do offer search called Oracle Secure Enterprise Search. Take a look at the Oracle Semantic Technology Centre

Microsoft can also say to be making up for the loss of TripleHop to Oracle,

There is still more surprises Evri.com a Paul Allen backed semantic search engine has launched a Beta release in June 24.

Other similar service providers includes TextDigger, Radar Networks Peer39.com that offers semantic technology in advertising, Gloofi.com Twine, then there is Spock calling itself a vertical search engine for people, usign top-down semantic search. In that sense we can call Google Maps to be using semantic technology though it cant be called a thorough breed in this field

  2. Hi,

    This was an interesting write up, thanks was helpful. infact I came across a similar system recently, XTractor- which provides manually annotated highly accurate PUBMED data (on proteins, drugs, diseases and Processes) for free everyday. the advantage it also acts as a community portal.
    check it out at http://www.xtractor.in

  3. It is not always easy to find scientific articles in free full text.
    For this reason, with google technology, i have created a custom search engine in order to find free full text scientific articles in PDF Format. This search engine indexes more than 10 millions of free references (mostly to journal articles, conference papers and technical reports).

    You can try it at this address: http://goo.gl/248em
