Topical Searches


What’s a Bot

  • A bot is a software tool for digging through data.
  • You give a bot directions and it brings back answers.
  • The term “bot” has become interchangeable with agent or alert, to indicate that the program can be sent out on a mission, usually to find information and report back.


A spider uncover mass amounts of information

  • Spiders, at times, run wild looking for URLs over and over again in a loop.
  • Crawling, indexing, then filtering this information by keyword reduces the information overload to some extent
  • Examples: Google, moreover, portal agents, etc.
  • 99% of what you see in web search engines and internal search engines across corporate databases and document repositories.

A Problem

“…according to market research house IDC, companies are generating more than 20 million web pages of content per day, and because around 85% of the data on the web is unstructured it estimates that, among the Fortune 1000 alone, difficulties accessing information will waste $7.5 billion this year.”

  • Computer Business Review, Sept. 12, 2002

Intelligent and Targeted Bots

  • Intelligent bots can make decisions based on past experiences, which becomes an important tool for data miners trying to perfect complex searches that delve into billions of data points.
  • A targeted bot does not follow urls but rather uses crafted formulas to pull back information targeted at particular information sources. This reduces the runaways and information overload.

Challenges: External Information Sources

  • Multiple Content Sources, Providers & Publishers
    • Internet
    • Content Aggregators (LexisNexis, Etc.)
    • Proprietary third-party publishers (BNA, Institutional Investor)
  • Overload & Overlook
  • Content delivery not personalized to the individual
  • IT does not understand content
  • No technical intermediary between content providers and knowledge administrators
  • Intellectual Property Issues: Content Licensing
  • Overburdened Bandwidth for retrieving then filtering information

What can be done

  • Pull together current awareness information from disparate content sources
    • Internet, Content Aggregators and other Proprietary Third-party Publishers
  • Provide powerful personalization
    • Each member of an organization only sees content for clients and topics critical to their work and interest
  • Deliver information as titled links
    • Content displays from provider’s system reducing bandwidth and storage issues
  • Deliver into any Intranet or Portal or as one consolidated Daily Email
