KeyConcept (Conceptual Search Engine)

This search engine retrieves documents based upon a combination of keywords and conceptual matching. Documents are automatically classified to determine the concepts to which they belong. Query concepts are determined automatically from a small description of the query or explicitly entered by the user. Concepts can be determined by means of a user profile; we have built a system that creates user profiles based on implicitly collected information, specifically the queries submitted and snippets of user-selected results.
