founder of search4science: "Researchers have grown fed up with the chaotic information
that reigns on the Internet, where many users seldom finding what
they are looking for," says Bjørn K. Pedersen, MD and
founder of search4science. "Our Darwinistic search method is the solution
to this problem, since it offers more synonyms and supplementary
words the more it is used. We have already applied for a patent
for the technical solution."
of the Work: As a result of this work, the company search4science
has been set up, and is owned by its founders and institutional
investors. On December 4th 2000 the meeting place search4science
was opened to researchers, and around 150.000 new words have already
been entered onto the database by users. In addition to the search
engine, the site offers a large number of services including an e-mail catalogue aimed at researchers.
