Funnelback Files Patent for Fluster

Feb 23, 2007

Enterprise search software vendor Funnelback has lodged a provisional patent application for its clustering engine--Fluster. Operating on-the-fly at query time, Fluster groups search results into themes based on document content to reveal how the search keywords have been used and in what context. Fluster's results are presented alongside the ranked search results, designed to enable users of all levels to explore volumes of content. Fluster is currently available for beta testing and is set to be publicly released with Funnelback's upcoming Version 7.
