The Hakia Mission
hakia is a general purpose "semantic" search engine, dedicated to quality search experience.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT HAKIA?
hakia is focused on bringing quality results via its semantic search technology. Today's search engines bring popular results via statistical ranking methods. Popular results are not always quality results, and the searchers suffer in many ways ranging from wasted search time to using misleading information.
WHAT DEFINES A QUALITY RESULT?
Quality result satisfies three criteria simultaneously: It (1) comes from credible sources (verticals) recommended by librarians, (2) is the most recent information available, and (3) is absolutely relevant to the query.
THE ROLE OF SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE QUALITY RESULTS
Semantic search technology enables accurate retrieval of information via concept/meaning match. It is very effective, and perhaps the only method, in application to credible and dynamic content. Because most of the credible and dynamic co
hakia is a semantic search engine that brings relevant results based on concept match rather than keyword match or popularity ranking.
hakia's designers broke from decades-old indexing method and built a more advanced system called QDEX (stands for Query Detection and Extraction) to enable semantic analysis of Web pages, and "meaning-based" search. See hakia-Lab for QDEX details.
SemanticRank algorithm is comprised of innovative solutions from the disciplines of Ontological Semantics, Fuzzy Logic, Computational Linguistics, and Mathematics. See hakia-Lab for SemanticRank details.
