Microsoft Acquires Powerset

Confirmed: Microsoft Acquires Powerset – ReadWriteWeb

The software giant has finally acquired Powerset. I hope the technology of Powerset will be expanded to span the entire web instead of just Wikipedia which is the case now. It will be interesting to see how effective that will be compared to keyword and page rank based robust technology of Google. It is important that giants like Microsoft and Google demonstrate semantic applications rather than conservatively sticking to simple keyword based technologies. However, I am not sure if natural language querying will be more effective and appealing than keyword search. I think it is much easier to do keyword queries than typing in full questions.

I presented this paper in the Semantic Authoring, Annotation and Knowledge Markup Workshop (SAAKM 2007) co-located with the 4th International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-Cap 2007), Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. It was an interesting workshop followed up by enthusiastic discussions.

Online proceedings is available here.  You can download my paper here and these are my slides.
