Welcome to Sprylogics Labs. Here you will find next generation technologies that we are working on.

  Semantic Answer Engine – ask.cluuz.com

 

Take years of natural language processing research, add open source semantic information and content from the likes of wikipedia, package available knowledge into semantic databases, mix in some real-time processing APIs and voilà – you get the real-world most advanced answer engine, ask.cluuz.com.

From movies, through food, to factual, philosophical and subjective questions, cluuz tries to answer based on information available in our knowledge stores and/or real-time information available from the web. Please note that as this is still experimental service so we don’t yet guarantee answers nor performance. Here are some examples:
