Powerset is a search engine focused on natural language processing. In other words, Powerset will not search based simply on keywords alone, but will try to understand the semantic meaning behind the search phrase as a whole. The company launched in May 2008 with intentions of making search more easy and intuitive.
Powerset was acquired by Microsoft on 1st July 2008.
