Accoona Trying New Search Directions

Accoona is trying to push the search envelop with the annoucement last week of their search portal.
The company is developing an AI approach to search with search segmentation similiar to the personal search methods used by other engines but with some interesting changes.

One of the enhanced search engine's new sets of functions, called the News function, enables users to instantly cross-reference search keywords to a suite of frequently used data-search categories. Users are presented with a set of eight drop-down buttons that allow results to be prioritized; refined by time period, media outlet, company name, country, or state; cross-referenced to a list of people; or differentiated by media type.
Information Week.

They are also developing a business segment that allows searchers to set the data sources for their searches.

This may be worth keeping an eye on.
