Search 2.0: Integrating Keyword and Algorithmic Search

Merlin is the first  search and discovery platform to integrate keyword and algorithmic search into one seamless experience. Take a quick walk through the platform.  

A Closer Look at 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. 

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.

In this second example, we start with 19 documents found in a search for “Havana Club,” a rum brand at the center of a trademark dispute. Sherlock analyzes the 19 documents and quickly finds more for our investigation. 

Utility Pricing

Our secure, cloud-native architecture supports a range of utility pricing options to fit your needs and your budget.
