Palm Beach Community College Pilots Semantic Search Engine for Health Knowledge.
Florida Startup Offers Multi-lingual Scientific, Open Access Health Content to 18,000 Students
August 25, 2009. (MIAMI, FLORIDA) - Palm Beach Community College ("PBCC") is the first community college to join a pilot program to deploy the HealthLibrarian semantic search engine for health data across its campuses and accessible to all PBCC students and staff.
HealthLibrarian is different from traditional search engines: it does not blindly crawl the web, or present matches based on a site's popularity. HealthLibrarian intelligently sorts and categorizes health-related information available from validated, academic, governmental and scientific sources in the so-called "Deep Web." Users can then interactively fine-tune their query to maximize the relevance of the result set. The results presented are highly relevant and specific to the conditions or diseases of interest, and grouped by the geographical areas selected by the user. Visit http://www.HealthLibrarian.net/search to see HealthLibrarian in action now.
