3Diligent Expands ProdEX and Shopsight Applications

#artificialintelligence

Its Shopsight application provides users access to project opportunities from ProdEX and enables remote assessment, quoting, and project management. Both systems incorporate 3Diligent's Connect interface which enables customers and manufacturers to communicate directly using a secure online portal and Zoom video conferencing tools. Operating similarly to traditional search engine marketing, manufacturers can create text ads that will display based on a customer's material and technology requirements. However, unlike traditional search engines, Connect is driven by RFQ inputs rather than generic keyword searches. As a result, manufacturers can customize their bids and visibility on dimensions such as material, technology, and program size to drive higher ROI.


What Do You Need to Know to Use a Search Engine? Why We Still Need to Teach Research Skills

AI Magazine

For the vast majority of queries (for example, navigation, simple fact lookup, and others), search engines do extremely well. Their ability to quickly provide answers to queries is a remarkable testament to the power of many of the fundamental methods of AI. They also highlight many of the issues that are common to sophisticated AI question-answering systems. It has become clear that people think of search programs in ways that are very different from traditional information sources. Rapid and ready-at-hand access, depth of processing, and the way they enable people to offload some ordinary memory tasks suggest that search engines have become more of a cognitive amplifier than a simple repository or front-end to the Internet.


Useful sites for finding datasets for Data Analysis tasks

#artificialintelligence

Let's now look at some of the useful sites for finding open and publicly available datasets, quickly and without much hassle. Google Dataset Search is a search engine dedicated to finding datasets. It is a search engine over metadata from data providers. This implies that it indexes over the descriptions of a dataset instead of its content. So if a dataset is available publicly, there is a good chance, that it will pop up in the Google dataset search.


Elastic Transformers

Contextual bit -- as we have seen, keyword search can be (sometimes) limiting. Context is definitely highly beneficial to receive results that are semantically related to what you are looking for: when looking for "virus threat", "virus risks" also appear, etc


Archie, the very first search engine, was released 30 years ago today

Mashable

On Archie's 30th anniversary, we salute the world's first search engine, a pioneer that paved the way for giants to come. Archie was first released to the general public on Sept. 10, 1990. It was developed as a school project by Alan Emtage at McGill University in Montreal. According to an interview with Digital Archaeology, Emtage had been working as a grad student in 1989 in the university's information technology department. His job required him to find software for other students and faculty.


The search engine boss who wants to help us all plant trees

BBC News

This week we speak to Christian Kroll, the founder and chief executive of internet search engine Ecosia. Christian Kroll wants nothing less than to change the world. "I want to make the world a greener, better place," he says. "I also want to prove that there is a more ethical alternative to the kind of greedy capitalism that is coming close to destroying the planet." The 35-year-old German is the boss of search engine Ecosia, which has an unusual but very environmentally friendly business model - it gives away most of its profits to enable trees to be planted around the world. Founded by Christian in 2009, Ecosia makes its money in the same way as Google - from advertising revenues.

Deep Search Query Intent Understanding

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

Understanding a user's query intent behind a search is critical for modern search engine success. Accurate query intent prediction allows the search engine to better serve the user's need by rendering results from more relevant categories. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive learning framework for modeling query intent under different stages of a search. We focus on the design for 1) predicting users' intents as they type in queries on-the-fly in typeahead search using character-level models; and 2) accurate word-level intent prediction models for complete queries. Various deep learning components for query text understanding are experimented. Offline evaluation and online A/B test experiments show that the proposed methods are effective in understanding query intent and efficient to scale for online search systems.


Mozilla and Google renew Firefox search agreement

#artificialintelligence

Mozilla and Google have extended their arrangement to keep Google the default search engine within the Firefox browser until at least 2023, ZDNet reported. The companies have not formally announced the deal, which ZDNet estimates is worth between $400 and $450 million per year, but are expected to announce it later this fall. The current arrangement was due to expire at the end of 2020. "Mozilla's search partnership with Google is ongoing, with Google as the default search provider in the Firefox browser in many places around the world, Mozilla spokesperson Justin O'Kelly said in an email to The Verge. "We've recently extended the partnership, and the relationship isn't changing."


Microsoft: Here's the real reason Edge crashed when Google was the default search engine

ZDNet

Microsoft has now offered an explanation for the bug that caused Chromium-based Edge to crash when Google was set as the default search engine – but didn't crash if Microsoft's much less popular Bing was set instead. The crashes were happening when users typed in the address bar. The conditions for the crash made it appear to some that there was a skirmish playing out between Google and Microsoft on the new Edge, which ships with Bing as the default search engine and strips out many Google features that are in Chrome. At the time, Microsoft didn't explain the cause of the crashes and why it only impacted Edge with Google as the default. However, after fixing the bug it did advise users to "revert your browser settings that you may have changed" to avoid the crashes.
