Why Semantic Search?Search has a quintessential role in the success and efficiency of any businesses. Conventional search systems (indexing keyword search) can no longer meet the increasing demand for quality results and time-saving practices in today's world, nor do they offer any room for progress for the future. As a result, semantic search has increasingly been the choice as the next step by many businesses during the last decade.
Semantic search technology is based on a computerized system that understands content and query similar to how the human brain processes natural languages. Instead of matching the occurrence of words or symbols (as done in indexing systems), semantic search systems match concepts and their meaningful variations. As a result, a number of benefits emerge:
Improves the accuracy of the search results exponentially
Transforms search function from pointing a document to pointing a direct answer
Allows flexibility to use natural language queries, thus increases user engagement
Enables semantic understanding of the user behavior via search analytics
Prevents manipulations from content providers and users
Does not rely on external inputs (i.e., popularity) for base performance
Allows customization, user input, organic improvement
These advantages result in indisputable return of investment that are reported in several enterprise-wide case studies. Please see our summary on "what is Semantic Search?"
