Search Engines for the Physical World: The Future of Search Technology in an Increasingly Transparent World | World Future Society

Search Engines for the Physical World: The Future of Search Technology in an Increasingly Transparent World | World Future Society | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

SEO, search-tech: "Next Generation Search Tools

Online search technology has framed much of our thinking around our ability to find things. In general, if it’s not digital and online, it’s not findable.  -  However tools like Google Glass and flying drones add many more dimensions to existing search algorithms.

In the near-term future most advances will be focused on furthering our understanding of the inquiry-results relationship, making it more personal so our inquiries don’t need to be so exacting and precise to get the answers we’re looking for. According to Google Senior VP and Fellow Amit Singhal:

  • Search will become far more personal, and Google will be able to know what you’re looking for based on who you are.
  • Search engines will not only find, but interpret what they find by generating their own algorithms.
  • Advances in artificial intelligence and natural language understanding will result in deeper descriptions and understanding of web pages.
  • Answers, not links, will become more prevalent.
  • Search will do things, rather than simply suggest things.
  • Our digital lives will be combined into one searchable platform."

How Boolean Search can revolutionise the hiring process

How Boolean Search can revolutionise the hiring process | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it

Anyone who uses search engines should be thankful to George Boole for inventing relational logical combinatorial systems for key search variables (key terms, phrases, and buzz-words).

 

All recruiters will know how to use Google Search, but many do not know just how powerful the Boolean operators are when it comes to drilling down a manageable list of query results.

 

How you use a Boolean search can determine how successful you are in sourcing job candidates within automated tracking systems (ATS) and resume databases.

Could Google Someday Answer All Your Questions? | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
A study performed by Google found that more than one-third of people’s information needs are unmet, from complex questions to simple ones. Google, as it fends off rivals on all sides, wants to be the one to meet them.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Ackn. NYT  -  "Thirty-six percent of people’s information needs are unmet, Google found, and most are things people need to get through the day. The rest of the time, when people do find what they need, 59 percent do it using Google, the study found.  But Google wants to be the place people go to satisfy all their information needs.  “Our goal here really is to satisfy as many information needs as possible,” said Patrick Riley, a search analysis engineer at Google. “There are always things we’re not able to do, but there are a lot of possibilities, with the type of data that people are willing to share, that we can really use to make people’s lives better.”
