The Precognox Intelligent Search Engine

The Precognox search engine is a domain/subject independent intelligent indexing and search solution tool based on an open source Solr/Elastic/Lucene search platform as well as on a wide variety of linguistic tools.

We believe complex queries should be run on a clear-cut interface. It's not necessary to get familiarized with a complicated interface beforehand in order to decide which tool to use to find the most relevant information.

Precognox search features

It produces immediate feedback. The continuously indexed pages return results within 1 second.

It provides linguistically relevant answers. Not only is character-based matching given but the linguistic features of the text are also considered whether the language is Hungarian, English or another one. Additionally we offer the industry leading solution for person identification, as we can match names with misspellings, aliases, nicknames, initials, names in different languages (ie. Arabic, Pashto, Urdu, Chinese, Russian, English etc.).

It provides hints during search speeding up the process. Time is value, so we offer suggestions based on either your search history and/or the topic you are looking for.

Several after-search filtering possibilities- i.e. clusters- are at hand. These are either based on patterns found in the results (such as common words) or information stored in specific fields.

Taxonomies and thesauri of a certain subject matter also help in search therefore the expression wanted can easily be found in a different form. The already existing taxonomy can be used or created if missing.

The Precognox search engine makes the various sources of data searchable whether it can be found in various databases, html pages, in PDF, DOC or another document format.

You have absolute control over access rights to your data. You can assign different levels of access rights to the users of your Precognox powered search system.

We can also provide an easily configurable PHP based web interface that can be integrated into existing web frameworks such as CMS.
