  • Deep Web Technologies Founder and President to Speak on Federated Search and Foreign Language Translation

    SANTA FE, N.M., May 14, 2010 — Abe Lederman, founder and President of Deep Web Technologies, will be speaking today at the National Federation of Advanced Information Services (NFAIS) “Improving the User Search Experience” workshop (http://www.nfais.org/page/260-improving-the-user-experience-part-i). Lederman will be delivering a presentation about searching foreign language sources in one’s native language with translation of search terms and results. Lederman will speak at 3:15 pm, in the “New and Emerging Technologies” session of the conference. The one-day conference, being held at 300 Market Street in Philadelphia, looks at how the user experience is becoming the real differentiator in modern information solutions.

    Lederman’s presentation, “Federated Search: Breaking Down the Language Barrier,” explains the importance of multilingual search to the global research community, where the resource output of China, Japan, Germany, and other non-English speaking countries is rapidly increasing. The presentation discusses the history of and modern approaches to machine translation, challenges to translation, how the technology works, and who is doing it. The presentation includes a case study of how Deep Web Technologies is extending its federated search application, Explorit, to perform multilingual search in the global science gateway, WorldWideScience.org, improving the search experience for the entire international science community. Lederman’s presentation will be available through the NFAIS website after the conference.

  • Deep Web Technologies Founder and President to Speak at Swets Webinar

    SANTA FE, N.M., May 11, 2010 — Abe Lederman, founder and President of Deep Web Technologies, will be speaking tomorrow at a Swets Webinar about federated search and demonstrating his company’s Explorit federated search application, sold in partnership with Swets under the name SwetsWise Searcher. Lederman will be demonstrating the product together with Swets Product Manager Marieke Heins. The Swets Webinar will take place Wednesday, May 12, 2010 11:00 AM EDT. It is free and open to an international audience. A recording will be available after the event. Information about registration and about downloading the recording is available at the Deep Web Technologies resources page:http://www.deepwebtech.com/resources/index.html#Webinars.

    The Webinar is aimed at members of library and research organizations who have to deal not only with an overload of information but with the challenges of that information residing in disparate sources. Users need a simpler way to discover and access the content they need. The right tools can provide users with quick and relevant search results. Learn from a pioneer in the federated search industry how the Deep Web Technologies Swets partnership can put the right tools into your user’s hands.

    About the Presentation

    Researchers, particularly students, are making Google their first stop for research because it is “quick and easy.” They assume that Google will find the authoritative, scholarly information that they are seeking. However, the information in Google is not always the highest quality or the most reliable content. Librarians now have the opportunity to team up with a Federated Search vendor to once again make the librarian a search authority in finding scholarly information. In this session, the audience will learn of the features and capabilities that are currently available in Federated Search. The audience will also learn how librarians can play a key collaborative role in bringing Federated Search to their patrons.

  • Deep Web Technologies-Powered Federated Search Engine Science.gov Takes Government to Next Level

    Great dot-gov Websites 2009: 10 sites that take online government to the next level”.   One of the ten websites is the Deep Web Technologies – powered Science.gov search engine, hosted by DOE’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI).  Science.gov searches 38 government science collections, and comprises over 200 million pages of science information.

    Science.gov utilizes Deep Web Technologies’ next-generation federated search to provide one-stop access to the most comprehensive sources of government R&D information.  Our press release has more details! ____________________________________________________________________________________________

    SANTA FE, N.M., Aug. 4, 2009 — Deep Web Technologies-powered federated search engine Science.gov (http://www.science.gov) was featured in the Government Computer News article “Great dot-gov Web Sites 2009? (http://tinyurl.com/mqs74e) as one of ten websites that take online government to the next level. “The days of a web presence being an optional component for agencies are long gone. For most citizens, the primary way of interacting with their government is through websites,” says Joab Jackson, author. The Science.gov website, hosted by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), searches 38 government science collections, comprising over 200 million pages of science information, with the ease that citizens have come to expect doing research on the Internet. Science.gov utilizes next-generation deep web search technology (called federated search), to provide one-stop access to the most comprehensive sources of government R&D information. Also provided are a host of features, including clustering of results; links to related Wikipedia and Eureka News articles; selections capability to email, download or print research results; and an alerts service. In addition, all Science.gov searches are performed in real-time, helping citizens obtain up-to-the-minute new information on topics important to them. “We like to call the audience the science-attentive citizen,” said Sharon Jordan, OSTI’s assistant director for program integration. “We recognize that while it is of great use to scientists, there are also citizens in the public sector, as well as students and teachers, who need to know the source for authentic science information. We try to serve them all.” Next-generation deep web searching represents the future of search, because it allows for comprehensive searching of many obscure government databases and small collections, as well as popular collections, at the same time. The application obtains results in an easy-to-follow, aggregated list, all from a single search request, placing tremendous research power in the hands of everyday citizens. Fast, effective, efficient and comprehensive information discovery is a by-product of this technology: government databases don’t necessarily contain the most popular (i.e. often-visited) information, therefore the mainstream search engines such as Google, Yahoo! and Bing, which rank results on popularity instead of relevance, aren’t as strong for information discovery purposes. Deep Web Technologies has powered applications for the U.S. government dating back to 1998. Next-generation federated search is used for many  popular information discovery tools provided by the federal government, including Nutrition.gov (http://www.nutrition.gov/), Defense Technical Information Center MultiSearch (http://multisearch.dtic.mil/dtic/), Science Accelerator (http://www.scienceaccelerator.gov/), E-print Network (http://www.osti.gov/eprints), Food and Nutrition Information Center (http://fnic.nal.usda.gov) and WorldWideScience (http://worldwidescience.org).
