Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) June 15, 2009
Newcomer WebLib made a big splash at the Medical Library Association's annual conference this year with the unveiling of HealthMash, their new semantic search engine. Utilizing a pragmatic mix of proprietary natural language processing tools, semantic engineering and multiple knowledge sources, including their own extensive Health Knowledge Base, HealthMash is quickly achieving the highest precision and relevancy in surfing the Web.
WebLib's powerful Health Knowledge Base is automatically generated from diverse knowledge sources, such as MeSH and UMLS, while simultaneously utilizing the Web itself as a database. HealthMash integrates Medical and Scientific Dictionaries; PolyTagger (part-of-speech tagger); PolyPhraser (noun phrase parser); PolySpell (medical and scientific spell checkers); PolySearch (intelligent concept search engine); PolyCluster (search result clustering engine) and AllPlus (a Web 2.0 universal meta-search and discovery engine).
Fully customizable, users found HealthMash's ability to add their specific health, scientific, government, educational or other information sources "a big convenience" in a product that "takes the search out of the research".
WebLib will be releasing the beta version of HealthMash to the general public in July 2009.
