Searching for something today on the Web will usually return reasonable results. But what if a system was given more information, such as context, for the search? Motif is a retrieval system that attempts to answer a search query based on knowing the context of the search. MOTIF – which is built around Wikipedia – lets users search for Wikipedia articles. Along with their query, users are asked to provide context for the query.
Motif was created by the Search Technologies group.
