About Futurity
Futurity features the latest discoveries by scientists at top research universities in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. The nonprofit site, which launched in 2009, is supported solely by its university partners (listed below) in an effort to share research news directly with the public.

Free Book Free Book Search's document search tool is designed to return the maximum number of online documents from specific types of websites as per the users' choice. We have made this search portal very robust so that using the tools on this page, if a document exists somewhere - even hidden away - on the Internet, you will find it here. This is one of the only online tools that will actually find books and documents on non-book sites. Most other tools sift through digital libraries or known locations of e-books and documents, our searches also scan private collections that are normally hidden. There are a few methods for finding documents, and we have tried to incorporate all of them in one place by using the 'radio buttons'. You may need to try using a few of the search techniques to find what you are looking for, and you may need to sift through a number of documents. We have included a military search to search official military sites.

Free Email Address Lookup & Mailing Address Search - Free creation of questionnaires, surveys, tests and polls! Semantic search Guha et al. distinguish two major forms of search: navigational and research.[3] In navigational search, the user is using the search engine as a navigation tool to navigate to a particular intended document. Semantic search is not applicable to navigational searches. In research search, the user provides the search engine with a phrase which is intended to denote an object about which the user is trying to gather/research information. Rather than using ranking algorithms such as Google's PageRank to predict relevancy, semantic search uses semantics, or the science of meaning in language, to produce highly relevant search results. Disambiguation[edit] Such processes make use of other information present in a semantic analysis system and takes into account the meanings of other words present in the sentence and in the rest of the text. Every node of the network (called Synset) groups a set of synonyms which represent the same lexical concept (called Synsets) and can contain:

the Pattern which Connects from KaliYuga to Tao: Complexity of Tao The definition of complexity of a system is itself complex: several authors in different historical periods in different disciplines have used different definitions. Seth Lloyd ranked in the first 90s at least 32 examples of definitions, including information (Shannon), entropy (Gibbs-Boltzmann), algorithmic complexity, self-delimiting code length, minimum length description, number of parameters, the degrees of freedom or dimensions, mutual information or channel capacity, correlation, fractal dimension, self-similarity, sophistication, size of the machine topology, difference in a subtree graph, temporal or spatial complexity of calculation, logic depth or thermodynamics, arge-scale order, self-organization, edge of chaos and others. Generally, complex systems may have the following features:Very large number of elements and connections Difficult to determine boundaries It can be difficult to determine the boundaries of a complex system. May be open May have a memory May be nested

Creative Commons Search Skip to content PageRank Mathematical PageRanks for a simple network, expressed as percentages. (Google uses a logarithmic scale.) Page C has a higher PageRank than Page E, even though there are fewer links to C; the one link to C comes from an important page and hence is of high value. PageRank (PR) is an algorithm used by Google Search to rank websites in their search engine results. PageRank works by counting the number and quality of links to a page to determine a rough estimate of how important the website is. It is not the only algorithm used by Google to order search engine results, but it is the first algorithm that was used by the company, and it is the best-known.[3][4] Description[edit] Cartoon illustrating the basic principle of PageRank. Other factors like Author Rank can contribute to the importance of an entity. Numerous academic papers concerning PageRank have been published since Page and Brin's original paper.[5] In practice, the PageRank concept may be vulnerable to manipulation. History[edit]

Glean Comparison Search: An Educational Research and Search Tool Deep Web Intelligence We are finding many different industries are able to capitalize on Data-as-a-Service (DaaS). In this post we’ll uncover how a mining company is using BrightPlanet’s Data-as-a-Service model to monitor the Ebola health outbreak to keep their expatriates informed and out of harm’s way with the use of one dataset. You’ll see what type of data is harvested and how it is enriched to make it usable. Continue reading At BrightPlanet, we receive a number of questions about how BrightPlanet’s technology differs from our biggest competitors. People will commonly see companies like Kapow and Connotate and assume that our technologies are in direct competition. In this post, we hope to give you an understanding of how extraction companies and BrightPlanet’s harvesting technology don’t compete, as one may think, and explore the advantages of each individual technology.
