Berlin software enterprise semgine GmbH has completed the new release of its semgine sciPlorer®. semgine sciPlorer® is the first product based on the semgine® semantic search technology and the first semantic information retrieval assistant specially developed for researchers working in the field of drugs discovery and biomedical science.

Version 1.3 of the semgine sciPlorer® enables scientists to have terms explained to them simply using brief, concise collections of facts. At the same time, the results filtering has been fundamentally expanded, so more and better results can now be achieved.

"The reports now available, with their brief, clear facts, allow for very fast and effortless information acquisition and are a clear unique selling proposition for the semgine sciPlorer®" explains Dr Martin C. Hirsch, CEO of semgine GmbH. "With the extraction of facts from the Internet, we are consistently expanding the semgine sciPlorer®, developing it into a semantic search engine for the biomedical sciences. We’ve brought Web 3.0 a step closer for the biomedical sciences."

The semgine sciPlorer® is based on a completely new approach, which applies the principles of cognitive neuroscience to information processing. While conventional search engines create a normal word-based, full-text index of documents, semgine® builds up a semantic index, enabling users to accurately pinpoint individual facts in documents.

"We've really 'hit a nerve' in the community with the semgine sciPlorer®" notes Dr Thomas Meyer, Sales Manager Life Sciences at semgine GmbH. "A test customer summed it up aptly: With the semgine sciPlorer® you've developed an excellent information retrieval solution with a technically perfected refinement strategy."
