MineTech, Inc. a data solutions and marketing company, has announced the release of a search engine called Search Incite. Search Incite uses a content search format that is designed to read and understand how words are used in a sentence (for example, the distinctions between the word "mouse" as a computer component versus a rodent or "bass" as a fish, singer, or instrument).

Search Incite has three components to its search process. First, it uses a library of linguistic elements to read and filter data delivered by the search, based on terminology, phraseology, grammar, and other filters. The library is customized to include abbreviations, acronyms, and other labels that are unique to a company. Next, the engine applies a pattern matching technique to assign a priority to the search results based on the concentration of the data being searched. Finally, it displays the search results in an index, listed by subject. Users select the subject they are interested in, and information relating to that subject is highlighted within the document, Web page, or email.

Search Incite was developed to work with almost every format of structured and unstructured data and different languages can be supported by translating the library, which means that it can read a document in one language and convert it to another. It can also automate the metadata tagging process via the index and the XML translation process to standardize data definitions. Search Incite can also be applied to a user's email system to read, catalog, respond, or reject email messages, such as spam. The search engine can be deployed and priced on an annual license, subscription, ASP, or OEM basis.

MineTech, Inc provides data-centric software, marketing, and consulting services to vertical markets. Search Incite is a component part of MineTech's Data Incite Process, which includes Model Incite, an automated data mining and modeling software product and service, and Survey Incite, an online survey software product and service.
