The future of search

The october meeting of SuperCoP, the community of practice of knowledge managers in Belgium was around ‘Search’. We invited Paul Hermans to share with us his thoughts on ‘The future of search’.

Some trends :

-The switch from searching to finding. Data mining will help to find the answers to your questions.

-An improved user experience. Clustering and visualization of the search results will give access to better information than the first 20 hits we normally scan.

-The semantic search. Relations between data will be created automatically. Data finds data.
