First Intelligent Financial Search Engine Developed Researchers from the Carlos III University of Madrid (UCM3) have completed the development of the first search engine designed to search for information from the financial and stock market sector based on semantic technology, which enables one to make more accurate thematic searches adapted to the needs of each user. Unlike conventional search engines, SONAR -so named by its creators- enables the user to perform structured searches which are not based solely on concordance with a series of key words.

DeepDyve Explores The Invisible Web As web search engines have improved over the years, there’s been less attention paid to an “inconvenient truth” about the indexes of our favorite information finding tools—namely, that search engines still miss the lion’s share of information available on the web. This so-called “deep web” remains largely impenetrable to search engines for a variety of reasons, and for many types of queries that’s just fine. But if you’re a serious searcher, looking for the best information possible, you can’t afford to overlook this vast “hidden” store of information. And that’s a challenge, because search tools that probe the deep web are for the most part either obscure or fee-based. That’s changing, thanks to a company formerly known as Infovell and now called DeepDyve. DeepDyve’s approach is like no other I’ve seen. DeepDyve takes a similar approach to understanding information on the web. DeepDyve isn’t a threat to Google now or likely any time in the future.

Research Beyond Google: 119 Authoritative, Invisible, and Compre Got a research paper or thesis to write for school or an online class? Want to research using the Internet? Good luck.

And what’s more, you’ll only be searching a fraction of all of the resources available to you. Google, the largest search database on the planet, currently has around 50 billion web pages indexed.
