Meaning of Semantic Search[edit]

I have stumbled upon this page as a result of reading Google's announcement via the Wall Street Journal, March 15th 2012, that

"the company is aiming to provide more relevant results by incorporating technology called "semantic search," which refers to the process of understanding the actual meaning of words."

In my opinion, this imminent breakthrough (over the next couple of years?) will require a major revamp of this current Wikipedia page on the subject. One first step to take is to add in the Wall Street Journal reference. --Михал Орела 12:03, 6 April 2012 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by MihalOrela (talkcontribs)

How is Bing semantic?[edit]

In what specific sense is Bing a semantic search? It appears to be a fairly popular model of syntactic search, plus features in limited, selected areas that incorporate some meaning, in much the same way that Google does. I would like to note those features on its entry. ...In general, I think there's value in distinguishing general-purpose search sites like Google and Bing from sites that focus on a specific domain (e.g. Swoogle), and also distinguishing the latter from sites that are effectively front-ends to a database in which the semantics are static (I think GoPubMed is basically this, although I could be mistaken). Thoughts? (Should I produce some candidate text?) PaulBrinkley (talk) 23:12, 16 June 2015 (UTC)
