We built this amazing product from the ground up to take advantage of the latest software code, the newest user interface frameworks and the most powerful machine learning algorithm ever.
Merlin IS Features
Powered by Sherlock
Sherlock is our smart, machine-learning algorithm that helps you find information in large document populations. It works in tandem with keyword searches to identify relevant documents, much like Pandora Internet Radio helps find new music.
Sherlock’s strength is its speed and scalability. It can analyze and rank a million documents in 100 milliseconds and then deliver them in order of likely relevance. Indeed, it can analyze and rank 10 million documents a second and there are no practical limits to further scalability.
It works as easily as it looks. Find a starting document through keyword search or any other means available. Send it to Sherlock and our unique algorithm will quickly find more for your review. Mark them Thumbs Up to tell Sherlock he is on the track. Or Thumbs Down if he is off the track. You can also start with multiple files from a search or a folder. Simply select and send them to Sherlock.
"We can’t wait to do more with it!”
"This dog can really hunt!"
See Sherlock in Action!
Watch these videos to see Sherlock in action. The videos are all based on a collection of nearly two million emails from Jeb Bush’s two terms as governor of Florida in the early 2000s. Governor Bush made these documents public, and a portion were used at the NIST Text Retrieval Conferences (TREC). They cover a wide range of topics and create an ideal environment to see Sherlock in action.
In this introduction to Sherlock, we start with one document related to efforts to protect manatees in Florida and send it to Sherlock. Sherlock then analyzes the approximately two million documents on the site to find more. Watch how quickly Sherlock finds helpful documents.
This second video shows you the full extent of our integrated search platform. Start with Freeform Search (no keyword syntax required) and the move on to find a good starting set of documents. From there, send the starting set right to Sherlock. From start to finish in seconds.
