MarpX technology is about precision access to information through either text data mining or search. Think of it as an accurate, efficient, and customer-friendly FILTER that would eliminate the Cascading Renditions of All Possibilities served up by the conventional engines. You are left with only the results most likely to be meaningful to you. To illustrate, consider two experiments, one that you can do, and a second experiment that the conventional search providers (Google, Microsoft, etc.) should try.
The marketplace has become accustomed to CASUAL SEARCH. It's good, so long as your need is not SERIOUS RESEARCH, where you do not want to waste your time digging through mountains of false hits, or be left feeling that some solid results are held back from you. The Partners portion of this web site is about market niches for SERIOUS RESEARCH that are not well served today.
Here is a note on on our firm's development since 1976 and on its current weaknesses and strengths. Incidentally, if you are wondering about MarpexInc versus MarpX, here is a quick explanation of our name.
We are in the business of creating and licensing technology related to search engines and text data mining. We also have Pryvit technology for secure storage and transmission of computer files. Our Level One MarpX engine covers search and text mining in single books or bookshelves. Our Level Two and higher engines range to large libraries and beyond.
Our goal is to license the full range of these technologies across many possible uses. That's what this Partnering section is all about.
Ideally we would like to cooperate with one super partner who would take on the task of licensing to other organizations. This would permit us to focus our energies on development of technology and writing patent applications. In a super partner, we would look for integrity, commitment to the dignity of customers, marketing clout, a strong IT team, and some level of respect for the faith-based perspectives that are at the root of our creativity.
A super-partner with IT strength could help by enhancing interfaces and further productizing the various offerings at this web site. With the appropriate legal agreements in place, a super partner would be given access to all source code plus coaching in the underlying technologies, with a view to further development.
Here are examples of market opportunities based on our Level One technology -- compilation, indexing, search, data mining / research in collections of up to 3.2 million words each.
Examples of market opportunities suggested in this section are based on our Levels Two through Seven technology, operating on collections which multiply in size by 4096 at successive levels. The Level Two limit is 13.4 billion words, Level Three 55 trillion words, etc. (Note: The size of the Internet is passed somewhere around Level Five.)
Let's revisit the needs of graduate and undergraduate students struggling to find useful content through conventional search engines. At MarpexInc, we have reflected for over a decade on how their needs might be better served.
What is needed goes beyond concept search. Certainly, text data mining can assist in building concepts and in scoring the strength of their presence in each of the myriad Level One building blocks that make up a massive Big Data collection. Our learning about back-of-the-book indexing also will come into play.
We would love to mentor / coach / spark thinking (and learn from!) an IT team competent in computational linguistics who want to carry concept search into a powerful, yet easy to drill-down, set of tools for SERIOUS RESEARCH.
