Can Natural Language Search Bring Down Google?
Powerset, A startup search engine company, has just licensed technology from Xerox PARC that it hopes can give it an edge over Google. That edge: natural language search queries that actually work. Powerset's search engine is currently under development, so no working prototype is available on the web as of yet, but according to all the media coverage this company is currently receiving, things are looking good for the near future.
Upstart search engine Powerset has just secured an exclusive license for natural language processing technology from Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center. It's a move that some are claiming will allow the small firm to someday challenge Google.
