With this technology Saplo for instance intend to create a different search technology and also to optimize current web advertisement technology. Mattias Tyrberg has already received several confirmations, from companies such as Google, Microsoft and IBM, that their semantic technology is unique. Their technology is capable of doing automatic text analysis which interprets the meaning of text, rather than analysing keywords which often produce incorrect search result.
