I’m hoping as things progress on the development of the safe network that there is more talk of search on safe. Apache Tika apparently has many uses including scanning the deep web for much more than text files but many different data types, as much of what we know of the web and it’s dark underbelly, comprise of much more than just text files. This can be useful for indexing different types of public data.
@Tim87 Has made a previous post and written up an RFC regarding indexed structured data that is a good read. Indexed Structured Data I mainly am posting this to try to envoke more discussion on the topic from others more technically adequate than I and to share what info I find that may be relevant.
I’m curious to see what the end solution will be. Will there be a specialized data type? Will we be crawling, accumulating, indexing? Whatever the case, the safe network is the platform to take the next step, in any case. So I feel that naturally semantic search should also be a huge part of the search discussion. If this post is too premature feel free to bury the thread but obviously please share any thoughts!
