Natural Language Search is basic tool to make sure queries entered at a public-facing website return meaningful answers. We don't need documents that contain the words we typed in a search box, we need documents that answer our questions. How can we accomplish that? The meaning-text theory, gives a totally new approach to the problem, with very interesting results, proven in many industries.
