Abstract

This paper discusses our development of a new Web engine, the Syzygy Surfer, which aims to induce a search/browsing experience that is more creative than traditional search. We do this by purposefully combining the ambiguity of natural language with the precision of Semantic Web technologies. Here we set out the framework for our investigation and discuss the context and background ideas that are informing the research. The paper offers some preliminary examples taken from our work in progress on the device and suggests the way ahead for future developments and applications.
