The German Engine Theseus Focused On Semantic Search

Library Blog Buzz is following the development of the European search engine Quaero. At first Germany and France were working together to develop an alternative to Google, but later the Germans pulled out of the project and started their own search engine called Theseus.

The new German search engine will focus on semantic web and "so-called semantic search technologies, where the search engine analyzes the context of the information found in order to determine what it is all about."

Pandia Search Engine News blog has another detailed report on what the information scientists will be working on Theseus, and if that is something you are interested in, just click here.

The first prototype of the new engine is expected by 2011. So far, Theseus is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology with 90 million euros and another 90 million are coming from participating partners, industry and research.
