A natural language search-engine for Wikipedia

powersetThe Powerset company worked on a seach engine for Wikipedia where we don't type mixed words, but a good english question. (Actually the engine is available only in English.)


searching-wikipedia

It will be certainly the research if the future, but for now, I was not really surprised by the results. One would say that the search-engine simply removes the words "who, how, why..." and moves the verb in the correct order when we type a question. :-|

Perhaps it requires more tests. The result must not be so bad because Microsoft and Google show interest for this little company.

The Powerset website is here for you to test.
