About this Blogsphere:

This blogsphere attempts to capture, catalog and share resources relating to visual perception of information. It is about a world mostly dealing with Physical (Touch, Taste, See/Sight, Smell and Hear) and sometimes Metaphysical (and that is none-of-the-above category). Physical, for instance, touch (e.g., feel, felt, found), look and visualization, is here with an attempt to combine verbal, vocal and visual--to synchronously see, hear, share and do much more. Interestingly, in order to visualize one does not need special skills, competencies, etc. It is all about common sense, especially with human visualizations. In short, "information is in the eye of the beholder." Continue reading much more all-ado-about this Blogosphere

Google semantic search -- Visualizing Searchability and Findability: from You to U

One needs to be clear about the terms semantic Web, and semantic search (see the distinction pulished in 2013 Search Engine Journal). In the context of semantic search, a question is worth asking: Is Google as a search engine running out of innovation, visualized through a very slow development of the search techniques (two news stories from the years 2009 and 2013 are below) and what is also seen below as the discussions on the subject? Is this then leading to other competitors, such as TechScour For Internet Publishers, to help search and find what you need when you need???? The answer is awaited.

2009: "You may have heard that Google is joining the race for the semantic search engine. Semantic search is the capability for a computer to understand what you're searching for based on the meaning behind your words instead of just pulling out keyword-based results. Google is up against a wide range of competitors for the semantic crown including newcomers Kumo, Microsoft's upcoming redesign of Live Search, and Wolfram Alpha-a search engine making some outlandish and unverifiable claims. ... Google is still the same old Google and an excellent first stop for finding information. However, Google is flying the semantic search flag without really delivering a noticeably different experience. If semantic is the future of search, then Google has a long way to go."
