spacerCase Studies: Reuters news articles
Needlebot's technology applied to search in Reuters news articles

The examples described in the document below constitute a subset of test cases performed on two Reuters 1987 database (containing 21,578 news articles from 1987), and a subset of the Reuters 1996 database (containing 102,338 randomly selected news articles
from the 800,000 available in the Reuters 1996 database). Full Presentation (PDF)

These examples demonstrate the ability of Needlebot’s proprietary, patented (issued on 2011) technology to dramatically improve existing keyword-based search capabilities by producing superior search results and providing users with a new and attractive menu of search features including:

  • Personalized search results: Examples (PDF)
    • Provides different relevant results that are customized to best match each user’s current interests (even when the same search phrase is searched by each individual).
    • Avoids the privacy problems usually associated with tracking a user’s search history.
  • Conceptual search: Examples (PDF)
    • Allows the user to search for concepts rather than keywords by using a paragraph, (a longer text snippet), as opposed to keywords.
    • Avoids many of the limitations associated with traditional keyword–based search methods.
  • Advanced Similar Pages tools Examples (PDF)
    • Ability to retrieve additional results and display them in order based upon their conceptual similarity to a selected document.
    • This tool works much more effectively than other similar pages found in other online search engines, retrieving very relevant hits that closely match the users’ needs.

Needlebot’s advanced Knowledge Management search capabilities could be easily integrated into any existing Enterprise Knowledge Management or Internet search application, or could be developed as a completely independent application. Once fully developed, we believe that Needlebot’s patented (issued on 2011) technology will produce a paradigm shift in Search/Knowledge Management applications by helping users relay their intentions to the search engine enabling it to retrieve highly relevant information very efficiently.

The strength of Needlebot's technology is corroborated with the following case studies.
