Whozat is a people search engine which beat Google 3:1 in relevance of search results as assayed by a blind comparison by a third party.
15-30% of web searches are people-related: >2 billion searches a month. Yet mainstream search engines are quite bad at finding ordinary people.
Whozat boasts a proprietary semantic ranking for query relevance rather than page importance, a real-time interactive feedback system that refines search results, an automated summarization engine, document (resume)-based search, a social watchlist, machine vision and more.
Whozat is available for licensing and has an API available.
Whozat is protected by US patents pending and trade secrets.
