Exalead, a provider of search software for business and the web, has been granted a patent for its unified search navigation and query refinement process that lets people "search by serendipity" by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Exalead's approach to search allows users to freely navigate among related categories and related terms in a transparent fashion. For every search query, Exalead returns a list of related categories and related terms so that users can broaden or refine a search by location, author, or format, or exclude irrelevant terms and topics.
Exalead, a provider of search software for business and the web, has also announced its exalead one:search technology is being used in Worldsat's DDream set-top box that lets consumers access and view content from personal computers on their televisions. Exalead's technology recognizes a wide range of multimedia file formats, from video to audio and images. The exalead one:search technology will also offer auto completion to find information in the next versions.
