  • One-Stop Search for African Knowledge: Deep Web Technologies Creates ASKIA Portal for United Nations

    ASKIA Facilitates Information Discovery in Multiple Languages and Across Different Devices

    SANTA FE, N.M., Sept. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) launched their Access to Scientific and Socio-economic Information in Africa (ASKIA) portal recently. The federated search-based portal, built and created by Deep Web Technologies (DWT), serves as a one-stop, real-time search of multiple information sources, and includes a multilingual search and translation capability, a localized user interface and a responsive mobile design. Researchers can find information from any device in one of four languages, and translate the results back into their language when the search is finished.

    The UNECA portal contributes to the goals of the ASKIA Initiative, designed to implement a single search of scientific and socio-economic knowledge by and for African researchers, academics, students, economists, policy-makers and other professionals. “This launch was critical in implementing the ASKIA Initiative,” said Irene Onyancha, Chief Librarian, Knowledge & Library Services, PIKM Division at UNECA. “The ASKIA portal taps into the major knowledge on and from Africa through a cohesive, centralized search available in the major languages and devices predominant throughout Africa.”

    Based on Deep Web Technologies’ (DWT) Explorit Everywhere! federated search technology, the ASKIA portal searches 31 knowledge sources simultaneously. When a user performs a search, Explorit Everywhere!, in partnership with Microsoft Translator, translates the user’s query from their selected search language, English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish, to the source’s language, searches for the user’s query, retrieves results to the portal, and translates the results back into the user’s selected languages. In addition to the multilingual search, the portal is localized to automatically update the screen text into the selected query language.

    The portal includes a responsive, mobile design. Researchers viewing the ASKIA portal from their mobile device will trigger an automatic browser detection which loads a mobile-friendly version of the application. Also included is MyASKIA, which implements the Explorit Everywhere! MyLibrary feature allowing users to save and tag selected results under his or her account.  Users can email, export, print or download results at any time.

    DWT CEO and CTO, Abe Lederman, stated, “UNECA’s vision is far reaching. DWT proudly supports the ASKIA Initiative, empowering African researchers to find global information in a single search, in their language, from their phone or tablet. It’s truly groundbreaking.”

  • Deep Web Technologies Announces Major Upgrade To Explorit Everywhere!

    SANTA FE, N.M., July 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Deep Web Technologies (DWT), a leader in federated search, announced a major upgrade to Explorit Everywhere! next-generation search technology. Explorit Everywhere! searches internal, subscription and public Deep Web sources simultaneously for relevant results, helping organizations improve their research efficiency and ultimately driving down research costs.

    The new Explorit Everywhere! release rebuilds the previous version from the ground up, laying a strong foundation for future enhancements. Now, as a platform-driven service, Explorit Everywhere! provides greater agility in support of different services and features, including search widgets, suggestion services, mobility and scalability. The web-based Explorit Everywhere! allows DWT to apply updates at the platform or customer level, creating a fluid, efficient workspace and consistent applications. “The versatility of Explorit Everywhere! lets my team complete multiple updates faster, and spend more time serving customers with tailored applications, or even creating new features,” said Ellee Wilson, Vice President of Professional Services at DWT. “It really opens the imagination to what is possible at DWT.”

    Explorit Everywhere! federated search initially gained traction in the government sector, but has since branched into the corporate, medical and academic markets. These markets, with their unique search needs, helped to define the new Explorit Everywhere! upgrade. With its web-based approach, Explorit Everywhere! is accessible anywhere and everywhere users search for information. Abe Lederman, CEO and CTO at DWT mentioned, “I’m pleased with the direction Explorit Everywhere! has taken. With this upgrade, we are well-positioned to provide innovative solutions across a range of industries.”

    New functionality in Explorit Everywhere! includes the MyLibrary feature, letting researchers select and save results to their personal accounts. MyLibrary allows users to tag and categorize selected results, similar to organizing folders in a filing cabinet. Users can reference their saved results whenever they want, for as long as they are saved in their application.

    Incorporating Deep Web Technologies’ bedrock multilingual search technology, Explorit Everywhere! now lets users switch their user interface text to their language of choice: English, German, French, Portuguese or Spanish. When users select their query language to search across multilingual databases, the user interface will automatically update the user interface text to that language as well. Combining multilingual searching and user interface localization creates a seamless experience for researchers at global companies requiring, for example, local or foreign competitive intelligence, news or science in their own language.

    Explorit Everywhere! is also now completely mobile, using elements of responsive design to formulate a device-driven user interface. With over 100 device screen resolutions worldwide and growing, Explorit Everywhere! detects the screen resolutions users are coming from, and fits the content to the screen of the device, ensuring results are easy to view, sort and interact with, whether viewed from a tablet, phone or desktop computer.

    Lederman said, “There really is no limit to where Explorit Everywhere! can go. We’re exploring possibilities I would never have dreamed of before, and we’ll continue to enhance our product capabilities to benefit our customers and to demonstrate our search expertise.”

  • Microsoft Customer Case Study Applauds Deep Web Technologies’ Multilingual Search Technology

    Study Shows WorldWideScience Alliance and Deep Web Technologies Provide Global Access to Scientific Research

    SANTA FE, N.M., Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – Microsoft’s new Customer Case Study, published on January 08, 2015, commends the innovative, multilingual, search solution, WorldWideScience.org, developed in partnership by Deep Web Technologies (DWT), Microsoft Translator, and the WorldWideScience Alliance. WorldWideScience.org combines DWT’s federated search solution, Explorit Everywhere!, and Microsoft’s Machine Translation Services (Microsoft Translator) to provide global access to science published in any language by translating a user’s queries into the language of the source and search results into a user’s native language. Lorrie Johnson, the WorldWideScience.org Project Manager, explains “We search approximately 100 repositories, 20 of which are non-English, that we estimate include more than 500 million pages of science and technology information. So instead of having to go to 100 different sources to find content, WorldWideScience.org, using Microsoft Translator, offers the ability to search all of them with a single query.”

    DWT’s Explorit Everywhere! multilingual solution, using Microsoft Translator, encourages international collaboration and allows researchers to find published information in their field of study, regardless of the language. “We found Microsoft Translator to be fast and accurate, and enjoyed working with the translator team,” mentions Abe Lederman, DWT’s CEO and CTO.  “Users definitely appreciate viewing the side-by-side page translations they see through Microsoft Translator when they click on a result from the application.”

    DWT has been refining their technology with the WorldWideScience Alliance since 2010.  The application is designed for intuitive use and exposes researchers to diverse perspectives from researchers in foreign countries. “Using Microsoft Translator, WorldWideScience.org has gained a lot of attention and visibility in government circles,” says Lederman who sees opportunities to use his company’s Explorit Everywhere! application for many other solutions. “The intelligence community, multinational companies, and risk-analysis firms are all examples of organizations that could really benefit from federated, multilingual searches.”

    “Microsoft Translator can help customers better reach their internal and external stakeholders across languages.  By building on the proven, customizable and scalable Translator API, Deep Web Technologies has developed a solution that has a direct impact on researcher’s ability to learn and exchange with their peers around the world, thereby improving their own research impact,” says Olivier Fontana, Director of Product Marketing for Microsoft Translator.

  • Deep Web Technologies Expands Its Explorit Everywhere! Search Service

    Researchers gain access to more targeted content than the Discovery Services

    SANTE FE, N.M., Sept. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – Deep Web Technologies (DWT) expands the functionality of their Explorit Everywhere!™ multi-source search solution with a release focused on improving the findability of the most relevant content for customers with hundreds of information sources that can all be searchable at the same time.

    For customers, such as Stanford University or UCC (University College of Cork) with several hundred sources that they wanted to search, DWT worked closely with library staff to organize the databases being searched into 8-10 high-level subject categories and 50-100 sub-categories that enable users, particularly ones with multidisciplinary research needs, to focus their search on the subject categories and sub-categories most appropriate to them.

    DWT also worked closely with library staff to organize the results returned into a number of tabs displayed by document types such as multi-media, data sets, government documents and primary research as well as articles, eBooks and news that are meaningful to the users of Explorit Everywhere!.

    Customers have noted that a significant difference between Explorit Everywhere! and Discovery Services is that DWT searches the full-text of eBooks and eJournals. Also, while there is usually a lag time between when an eBook is purchased and a catalog record for it is added to the library’s catalog, with Explorit Everywhere! the eBook is discoverable as soon as it is added to the publisher’s website. Another major feature of Explorit Everywhere! not available in Discovery Services are alerts which users can setup to monitor topics of interest. Also available in Explorit Everywhere! is integration with a link resolver and direct export of search results to a reference manager.

    Unlike out-of-the-box Discovery Services where a library is constrained by the content available to the Discovery Service, DWT works with library staff to select the sources each department library wants to make available to their constituents. Such an effort at one academic library led to adding to the Explorit Everywhere! solution a critical mass of sources in Art, History and Music and other under-represented academic disciplines.

    DWT plans to continue to expand its use of Explorit Everywhere! enabling users to embed a search widget as well as search results in any web page. Mr. Lederman, CEO of DWT believes, “The internet is about decentralization of information – libraries spend millions on subscription content that is often underutilized because access is not convenient. Explorit Everywhere! is committed to increasing access to the right content wherever you are.”

  • Deep Web Technologies Celebrates Tenth Anniversary of Science.gov

    Science.gov innovations set the gold standard for federated search.

    Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) December 18, 2012

    Deep Web Technologies, a leader in federated search, celebrates the tenth anniversary of powering the premier, publicly accessible, government portal Science.gov. Launched in December 2002, Science.gov has grown from a portal providing access to 18 sources to becoming the top federal government science search engine, providing access to 59 sources and over 200 million pages of research. “Science.gov has always been a showcase for our company” says Abe Lederman, President and CTO of Deep Web Technologies. “Science.gov has challenged, funded and been the first adopter of major innovations in Federated Search that have set the gold standard for our industry. These innovations have included on-the-fly relevance ranking, incremental display of results and highly scalable federated search of federated search.”
    To prepare for the tenth anniversary festivities, Deep Web Technologies, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), gave Science.gov a virtual facelift. New features such as result topic visualizations and multimedia searching enhance the search experience.

    Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) November 13, 2012

    Ciencia.Science.gov, the Spanish version ofScience.gov, was recently launched by the Science.gov Alliance in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) and Deep Web Technologies (DWT). DWT’s Explorit federated search product employs patent-pending multilingual technology to provide real-time Spanish searching and translation of results from 17 organizations within 13 federal science agencies, and more than 55 scientific databases and 2,100 selected scientific websites. The application is directed to native Spanish speakers who would like to access federal government information by searching and reading results in Spanish. The interface is localized in Spanish, making Ciencia.Science.gov an excellent choice for Spanish-speaking researchers.

    “The Ciencia.Science.gov web site will help increase the vital role of U.S. scientific information in education, innovation, and discovery, and will help encourage Latino communities to promote careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics,” Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said in a Science.gov Alliance Press Release. Searches performed in Spanish will return results from English sources that are translated into Spanish for the user. “It’s a seamless process,” stated Abe Lederman, President and CTO of DWT. “The result translations happen automatically so that users can quickly browse results from English sources in Spanish.”

    In December of 2012, Science.gov will celebrate its tenth anniversary of providing critical information to the science-attentive citizen. Science.gov and the new Ciencia.Science.gov both provide a rich search experience returning reports, web pages, and data. The new Multimedia feature includes images, audio and video from notable sources such as MedlinePLUS and ScienceCinema. Result topic clusters, which have up to now been only text-based can now be viewed visually, increasing the speed with which users can navigate through result topics.

    Ciencia.Science.gov is the second multilingual application developed by DWT, the first beingWorldWideScience.org which searches content in ten different languages. “Multilingual search and translation are critical to the dissemination of information around the world,” said Lederman. “We’re helping to create an environment that fosters global scientific cross-pollination through next-generation federated search.” Machine translations for both applications use Microsoft Translator, through a partnership with Microsoft.

It is the tool of choice when needing to access the Deep Web, a collection of Internet information sources that are generally not accessible to web spiders or crawlers and cannot, therefore, be indexed for search by popular search engines such as Google, Yahoo! or Bing. Explorit performs real-time searches of multiple information sources, in parallel, merging the results into a single page. Serving Fortune 500 companies, the Science.gov Alliance, the U.S. Department of Energy, the Defense Technical Information Center, Stanford University, the Texas Medical Center, WorldwideScience.org and a wide variety of other customers, partners and research and library alliances, Deep Web Technologies has built a reputation as the “researcher’s choice” for its advanced, agile information discovery tools.
