Nstein Launches New Semantic Site Search

Nstein Technologies, Inc. ( announced the release of a new product, Semantic Site Search (3S), a front-end, multi-index search engine. 3S leverages Nstein's patented text-mining technology to power a faceted site search that returns highly accurate results that are organized categorically.

Nstein CTO Jean-Michel Texier says, "Standard, statistical site search often doesn't give users the results they are looking for. Matching simple keywords against hundreds of thousands of documents sometimes returns a lot of irrelevant results. 3S provides an entirely different experience."

3S can ingest content from many different indexes from many different web publishing platforms, meaning it indexes material across multiple properties. It then applies Nstein's patented semantic enrichment process to it. 3S's embedded Text Mining Engine (TME) identifies concepts, categories, proper names, places, organizations, sentiment, and topics (in particular, content pieces) and then annotates those documents, creating a semantic fingerprint that exposes underlying nuances and meaning in content.

3S is also highly configurable and customizable. It has a visual interface that allows administrators to tweak search sensitivity algorithms without having to modify hard code. 3S comes bundled with front-end widgets designed to improve the search experience. Widgets can be used to point users to "similar content," "most recent content," or virtually any other identifying characteristic of content that one wants to promote. Using widgets and the powerful templating engine, integrators can quickly build complex search-based mashups, across indexes.
