IBM search engine

Search concepts, not keywords, IBM tells business, the article at Reuters, shows the new plans of IBM in corporate search, after IBM marched in this field on 18th may in alliance with google. (read article here).

And this tool will be available open source via Sourceforge.While simple but powerful keyword searches have revolutionized how Internet users locate and retrieve information, IBM is looking to transform how office workers sift through the piles of data stored inside organizations.Also, IBM plans to openly offer other software developers its Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA), a technology that can analyze text within documents and other media to understand latent meanings, relationships and facts.

While they say search is based on context or "concepts" as they call it. It seems quite similar to one of the search engines Vivisimo which categorize the search results based on the different possible meanings or concepts of that word.

Eagerly waiting for it, lets see what new they are offering?
