DataSift - A browser that understands you!
For a hassle free and snappy search, what can be better than a browser that can scrutinize your mind and interpret your thoughts?
For a hassle free and snappy search, what can be better than a browser that can scrutinize your mind and interpret your thoughts? It is rightly said: “There’s nothing better than the human touch!”
While Google seems to be the convenient choice for a straightforward search, it has its fair share of limitations. Although it is one of the most popular search engines, yet what escapes the notice of the incognizant audience is that IT IS possible now to provide a name to a face or even to find a dog-friendly, non-smoking holiday apartment that is in close proximity with an outstanding pub!
DataSift is a new breakthrough in the search engine department that took birth to deal with billions of queries and social interactions. It is a cloud based, elastic, and cost effective platform that can be employed for business endeavors and developing applications on social insights.
The Inside Story
The most interesting and engrossing feature of this browser-cum-app is its modus operandi. At the basic minimum, it splits up a query into several components which can be administered quickly by human labor on crowd-sourced sites. It has a threefold working process:
- Unified Access: DataSift has partnered with news providers and social networks to aggregate the data from several sources such as Twitter, Facebook, and so on.
- Standardizing and Structuring: It overcomes the only problem other search engines encounter while trying to answer complex, visual, and vague questions. DataSift improvises a newfound technique of transforming the random social content into a standard format for wieldy analysis and filtering.
- Real and Historic Time: In addition to the real time information, this platform furnishes you with an access to historic records for time based analogies.
Thus, DataSift discerns the “interesting” out of vague social data and surfaces that. It is a state-of-the-art, robust platform that digs in and anticipates the relevant information to provide a “human edge” to search results. Therefore, it’d be needless to say that DataSift is the backbone of social media analysis and the emerging future of the application and business networks!
