Do Your V's Pass the Google Truth Test?
Revisited and sharing with you an article that was published at least a year ago, written by David Amerland . He is Google semantic search “enthusiast”. (Some folks have a problem with using the word “expert”. I have a problem with using the word " rat " which is what he calls himself.)
The article's catchy title sucked me right in and once there, it was not a disappointing read. For one thing there are references to ancient Rome and Dr. Who, two topics sure to capture the attention of any reader. Another thing? It's a definitive revelation about Google doing … ??? … something or other with their search engine by measuring V's:
- Volume, Velocity, Variety, and Veracity.
Briefly summing up the article, in Mr. Amberland's own words quoted below – in an effort to ensure that those who search for information, data, etc., actually find what they're looking for:
“ We don’t have Soothsayers around anymore but we have Google and its semantic search engine. Semantic search is a Big Data solution to the problem of ever increasing amounts of information accumulating on the web.”
Lifting a quote from Amberland's G+ profile intro because it makes sense to me: “Sensemaking changes everything.”
