We have a lot of info about variuos types of search and search engines.
The lastrends are to use semantic search and conversational search.
But users need to view full text of info sources and then select excerpts (snippets).
Now it is buzzword “discover”. One of definitions about search versus discover is “search goal is to find one or few relevant info sources, discover goal is to find all related sources”.
The next trend is curation – content curation, digital curation, data curation etc.
I shall try to desribe in the next blogs the goal of curation, features, processes, benefits, tools (there are link to more than hundred tool).
Content curation is used both by marketing and research.
Analytics is one of the trends in future. Earlier we used data analytics, now it is very important text analytics – big data analytics.
And it is very important semiautoamtic reporting when you get info in any way.
