As we are all fond of saying, innovation follows pain points. Are we missing something in our uber-critical search capabilities that needs to be resolved? A colleague recently pointed me to a slim volume "Structured Search for Big Data" by Mikhail Gilula (published by Elsevier and available on Amazon) that argues that not only are our search tools deficient but that a complete revamp of the underlying key-word NoSQL DB structure is what's required. Use Google, Amazon, or any of the other life-critical search tools we've become so reliant upon and you are using key-word search on NoSQL. The pain that Gilula identifies is the length of time it takes the consumer to research and select complex merchandise for best deals resulting from the imprecision of the search results.
