Semantically powered question answering start-up True Knowledge today made its Semantic Search API available for public consumption, taking the next step on the company’s journey out of beta and providing a clear steer as to the way in which they intend to generate revenue.
As the company’s press release notes,
True Knowledge offers two distinct API services for developers: the ‘Direct Answer API’ and the ‘Query API.’ The Direct Answer API allows developers to leverage True Knowledge’s natural language question answering technology, giving any search site or application the ability to provide a single direct answer for questions asked on any subject in plain English. This is especially well suited to mobile applications where providing a lengthy list of search results may be impractical.
The Query API allows developers to bypass True Knowledge’s natural language translation system and directly query True Knowledge’s knowledge base using a simple query language. This allows automated systems such as web and mobile applications to tap into True Knowledge’s vast machine-understandable knowledge of the world, making them behave more intelligently.
