Mamma Systems better known as purveyor of information management tools for TCP/IP-based networks, has launched a new meta search engine, code-named ‘Mamma,’ or the ‘Mother of All Search Engines.’ Mamma is a search tool that uses natural language analysis, dispensing with the need for the usual Boolean search terms like ‘and’ and ‘or’. The program analyzes the query and adapts it for each engine it decides to query, and can add missing operators, filter out search words and transform and adapt words and operators for each different search engine it queries. It can query as many as seven search engines simultaneously, claims the company. The tool doesn’t maintain a local database, but relies instead on the databases of various web-based sources. Mamma says it will be adding additional options in the future, such as thematic searching, title searches and targeted querying into specific areas, such as Usenet news and stock prices. The company plans to finance the search engine through sponsorship.
