The search challenge

As some of the readers of this blog know I am also working on projects in the field of search and semantic search. So I eagerly had a look at the Miiget project for a new people search engine.


As one can see in the query above also very sophisticated solutions have their limits: the query for Günther Beckstein, former Minister-President of Bavaria in Germany, is linked to Adolf Hitler. I’m sure that’s not what was intended.
But besides limitations like that the Miiget project is pretty impressive.
