search cancel – Semantic People Search Engine

Whozat.comWhozat is a semantic search engine for people finding that allows you to find information on everyday people that you wouldn’t necessarily find with other engines. Whozat scours a number of sources including search engines like Google, as well as social and professional networks.


The engine is also interactive in the sense that it allows users to give feedback in the form of a checkmark or an “X” on every element of the results that they receive. Searches are ranked according to the relevance of your query making it much more successful at providing information about ordinary people. Finally, Whozat automatically generates tags that allow a searcher to indicate which person, or which aspect of a person they are interested in. In Their Own Words
