Knowledge from data

with 2 comments

I and the rest of the Datafiniti team are excited to announce the launch of the first search engine for data.  This search engine will make it possible for you to tap into the vast store of knowledge and information kept throughout the web.

Unlike other search engines, which provide simple keyword-based queries and are only intended to return single results, Datafiniti lets you enter more structured queries that will generate full data sets taken from the web.

Take a look at the video below to get a sense for how this works:

 

Currently, Datafiniti lets you search for data on locations (or businesses), people (and social data), products, property (or real estate) and news.  It is our commitment to provide the most extensive and robust data around these data types and many others as we move forward.

Although the business and technical challenges of providing such a tool to you greatly excites us, there is a more fundamental belief that has driven the creation of Datafiniti.  We believe that Datafiniti represents a significant step forward in the development of a data-driven mindset.  We believe that data is the building block of knowledge, and it is our hope that you are able to find knowledge through the data we provide.

    • Our product is still in beta. We are looking at the best way to provide source attribution – not only in the results but in the terms of use and other areas.
