Search engine technology is in a state of flux as it digs ever deeper for new meaning. Europe is poised to reap the benefits of the new age of semantic search thanks to the work of European researchers.

?Search? is the gateway to the web, it keeps internet traffic moving, it provides the maps and the shortcuts through the enormous tangle of the World Wide Web.

But while there is a phenomenal amount of content, most of it is not that easy to find. Sure, text content can be skimmed or glanced, but audiovisual content has to be viewed in linear time. We cannot easily search inside a film or audio recording for relevant information.

That is changing, and one European project has created the first integrated platform for semantic search that can return results based on the content and context of film and audio files, as well as text.
