Accoona, the AI powered search engine has not received much popularity. The engine touts a powerful AI based algorithm that uses techniques that go beyond keyword search to retrieve relevant results. With a Chinese company having majority stake in the engine, it has received certain negative publicity.
The WebProNews suggests that there are some effective AI algorithms at work under the hood. Branded as a “business search” engine, Accoona does not pose an immediate threat to any of the major established players in the search market.
“Accoona, in addition to web spiders that populate and update its database, has access to hundreds of millions of records from worldwide sources, delivering the richest and most robust database for search results. With a database of over 20 million US companies and over 30 million companies worldwide, the user will be able to search for businesses utilizing a large array of criteria: such as Name, Physical Address, Telephone, Fax, Business Description, industry category, company’s URL and geographic location.”
