HealthBase semantic search is very positive about the Semantic Web

September 3rd, 2009

HealthBase is a ‘semantic search engine’ for healthcare information that is driven by content mined from “millions of authoritative health sources” including WebMD, Wikipedia, PubMed, and Mayo Clinic’s health site. Techcrunch first described it as the ultimate medical content search engine but then had a follow up article reporting that HealthBase thinks you can get rid of jews with alcohol and salt. Language Log had some more fun exploring HealthBase.

We thought we’d see what HealthBase thought of the Semantic Web and it turns out that if you are experiencing the Semantic Web as a condition there are several recommended treatments.


and as a treatment itself, HealthBase is pretty positive.
