Search Engines from the day after tomorrow
D5 - Databases and Information Systems
SummaryNext-generation search engines should understand quantitative measures of entities. For example, it should be easily possible to retrieve all entrepreneurs worth between 1 and 10 billion Euros, and a query for electric cars with CO2 footprint below 5kg/100km should be answered precisely and concisely. We are developing algorithmic and machine-learning methods towards this goal. Our Qsearch prototype supports searching for financial, technical and physical quantities. Ultimately, we aim to support analysts in effortlessly tapping Internet contents for advanced studies.
