5.5 A Search Engine that Answers Questions

At present, we search the internet by carefully choosing key words, hoping that the use of those words will provide the appropriate web pages to answer our questions.

Using this manner, it is relatively easy to find the meaning of difficult words or terms, but the process becomes more difficult if we have questions for which specific expertise is needed to be able to answer them and you are unsure of the correct terminology or appropriate context.

And, in which language can you best find the information? In many cases you may try in English. But what if you don’t know the correct translation or the information is only available in Chinese? How then do you get your questions answered?

Only in the case of a search engine that “understands” the information in the correct context is it possible to ask questions.
