Search Wars Episode II. Yebol a new search!

One of my recent post discussed the dawn of the new era and new breed of search engines Search Wars.

a youngling from the the Stanford stable, a new search in the block.
Yebol's mission is to build human-like world's knowledge base and provide knowledge based search (semantics) and services.

Yebol utilizes a combination of patented algorithms paired with human knowledge to build a Web directory for each query and each user. Instead of the common “listing” of Web search queries, Yebol automatically clusters and categorizes search terms, Web sites, pages and contents.

Yebol allows for a multi-dimensional search result instead of the normal one-dimensional search seen by most web search engines today. This provides a more accurate summary of top sites and categories; a wider array of related search terms; a longer and richer expansion for query results; and a deeper base of links and keywords in search result pages.

Unlike current search platforms, Yebol provides hundreds of easily identified and accessibly categorized results in one easily navigable page. The results not only provide users with a rich search experience, but also help them quickly scan the results to find targeted information. In essence, generate a unique “homepage look” for each search query.

Yebol provides a productive experience for both main types of search – general investigation of a topic and specific target search. For users who want to research and explore a topic, Yebol provides rich information from several dimensions. For users who want a specific type of targeted results, they can quickly focus on their category and navigate to the target.

What is this?
is this a new industry?
or a old wine in a new bottle?

Well Life Sciences and Informatics can be anything form computational biology, all omes and omics, core bioinformatics to curation and literature mining, database creation, in the area of biology, chemistry , bio-chem space.

There are number of companies in India and bangalore is the forefront as a major bio-cluster with 20 to 30 companies in this sphere.

now how good are these companies doing?
how good are they in terms of the international markets and how profitable is their business?
what do they do?
