Mar 14, 2006

Accoona Corp., a provider of the application of artificial intelligence to Web search, has unveiled search functionality for Internet-based data search and retrieval.

The company's search engine portal,, has been enhanced to offer users two distinct sets of functionality: the "News" function enables users to instantly cross-reference their search keywords to a suite of frequently used data-search categories; and the "Business" function enables users to cross-reference keywords to a database that melds Dun and Bradstreet's database with Accoona's own database of business information, totaling more than 60 million businesses worldwide.

The News and Business function buttons enable users to focus and refine the results presented to them with a mouse click. In the News function, Accoona provides users with a set of eight drop-down buttons that enables them to: prioritize the results; refine by time period; refine by news organization or media outlet; refine by company name; refine by country; refine by state; find people; and determine the type of media.
