The Perfect Search Engine

"The perfect search engine," says Google co-founder Larry Page, "would understand exactly what you mean and give back exactly what you want." To understand what we mean, the search engine should understand context. I keep blabaring about "Context" all the time. Yes Context is the essence of the words meaning. Thus, a search engine that has no regard for context is never going to be perfect.

Although google search philosophy is very sound, but what i have experienced is somewhat different. As soon as you enter a search term and hit the return key, the top ten results are shown by google. The first criteria among these results seems to be that they are popular...Then the words we searched for are searched for. This seems to be a rather good logical thing to do..The reasoning goes as follows..

When does a person use a search engine??

When he comes across a piece of news or something that is the buzz word across the campus/city. So as soon as that query is presented to google, it will present the result that has a high probability of what you are searching for. But try searching for something that is 'stale news-over powered by new stuff that has same keywords'. Its here that we have problems.

The perfect search engine still seems a distant dream though..for now.I would like to tell that, when i metioned about 3d search engines and wise men---the idea is not to provide better graphics. Rather it should be to provide the best result. The user should be directed to "a page" that satisfies his query. He should not have any use for multiple pages. However, some search queires require information from multiple sources. In such a case more reulsts make sense.
