Swingly is a Web-scale answer engine designed to find exact answers to factual questions. Search isn’t about sending users to the right web page, it’s about getting them the information they want as soon as possible — sometimes it’s a web page, but it might also be a sports score, movie showtimes, election information, or some other piece of factual information. This’s where Swingly comes in — Just ask a question in plain English — and Swingly will find you the answer (or answers) you’re looking for.
“It’s an answer engine, but not like Yahoo Answers, which too often is an opinion engine and more like a message board or forum. Swingly is a fact engine, but with a different slant than Wolfram|Alpha. There’s also a bit of Wikipedia in the mix here, but with Swingly you can avoid reading those sometimes ultra-long articles to find that one fact you need. Swingly is machine-based and uses semantic text extraction to build its question-and-answer pairs, so it’s different from ChaCha’s human-powered service.”
