It is a WEB search engine?

Does Elasticsearch do research on the web?
I post this question because all demos that i have seen don't treat the web serach !

You can build it to do on site search. Lots of folks do. But it doesn't contain any crawling or similar features - just the storage of the page and search etc. Its a building block.

In fact, i'm working on a question answering system. What i need is a web search engine that takes as input the question keywords, and returns a set of ranked passages that may contain the answer.
Is Elasticsearch able to do this?
if not, please can you sugguest me other web search engines?

(Nik Everett) #4

Sure. That is exactly what it does.

(Stradivarius) #5

Okey. Please, can you send me a demo that illustrates this ?
(i did not find a demo concerning the serach on the web)

Wikipedia does that.
