Microsoft acquired semantic search company Powerset earlier this year, and now the Live Search team is revealing the first integrations of Powerset with Live Search.
- Freebase Answers Live Search wanted to include more of Live Search Answers, so they made use of Freebase, an open, shared database and something Powerset incorporates in its search.
- Improved Wikipedia captions Live Search also used Powerset to improve its Wikipedia captions within the search results. Previously, the results showed sentence fragments, but now the caption is more substantial.
- Improved Related Searches Live Search is incorporating Powerset's Factz engine to create the list of related searches on a given search.
What do you think of these integrations? Let us know in the comments.
