Factory Labs is a realtime search engine, which shows an innovative way to the content of the realtime web. The search engine not only indexes the content but uses semantic elements to assort the results. This happens by a proprietary algorithm, the FactRank. Beside semantic components the algorithm evaluates the content by the authority of the sources. Further information about the technology is available by a fact sheet (pdf) published at the press site, which also contains some videos.
Something else has been launched by the already introduced realtime search engine Collecta. Collecta provides a Widget Builder enabling to integrate realtime news streams by personalized search results.
