Google now also searches semantically – has used this as standard since 2010

As reported by the online media service (link in german) and by (link in german), is now using semantic search technology with its Google Knowledge Graph.

Google is using this graph to expand its conventional keyword search so as to search not only for individual character strings, words, and data, but also to highlight objects and their relationships. According to Google, this will make search results more relevant, reveal further connections between, and summaries of, the search objects, and expand the breadth and depth of the search.

The online platform launched by 4uGroup AG has been using Web 3.0, or semantic search technology according to ontological principles, since 2010. JANZZ’s functionality is based on high-quality matchmaking, so that searched-for and available skills and knowledge are brought together precisely and in real time in accordance with the specific criteria of the registered users. This means that job seekers can simply and cost-effectively record and offer their specific skills, abilities and experience in detail on, whether for full-time or part-time positions, or work on an assignment-by-assignment basis. In the same manner, employers use to record the skills, experience, and competencies they are seeking, whether for a project, an assignment, or for temporary or full-time employment. This allows the supply to be compared precisely with the available demand automatically and on an ongoing basis. In the event of a successful match, the job seeker and the potential employer are automatically informed, and the users can contact each other, anonymously at first, and request and exchange further details. As a result, job seekers and employers who register their offering on continuously exploit hitherto unused potential. Employers and employees no longer waste time (or money) in providing or searching for potential offers due to vague job descriptions or applications – because once these are stored on, there is no more need for people to search, because they are found instead. Quickly, securely and – initially – anonymously.
In parallel to this, can also be used for private matters, such as searching for a cleaner or offering after-school tuition in maths.
