hakia Semantic Search – Now Available for Syndication, First Partner is Mobile Applications Provider, Berggi
This has been a good couple of weeks at hakia. Last week, we announced the update of PubMed content to our BETA site, further enhancing our capability to offer credible content for health searches on the Internet. Now, on the heels of our technology licensing news in March, we are announcing the launch of an additional offering to Web sites and businesses looking to become early adopters of our core semantic search technology – Syndication Web Services.
hakia’s Syndication Web Services will allow businesses to use the same semantic technology that powers our search engine for their application needs. The services provide an XML feed, and options to customize the feed. hakia offers 30,000 searches per day free of charge and free of advertising that is available to early adopters. Also available is the hakia’s Search Box, which is a “do-it-yourself” version of the syndication services. The service details are outlined in the Table below.
We are also excited that our first partner for this offering is Berggi, an emerging global leader in mobile consumer applications and fellow technology innovator. Berggi has released an alpha version of a simple and easy to use mobile search application for global market adoption. The application is compatible with AT&T and Sprint phones (Blackberry and iPhones excluded). Please visit berggisearch.com to download the application.
