Egyptian startup Kngine has announced that its new Kngine search engine has gone live.

The search engine, which the company describes as a Web 3.0 search engine, has been designed to provide more meaningful results to search queries. The engine runs on technology that indexes the web in a well-structured knowledge base, instead of an Inverted Index fashion, to enable knowledge-based information retrieval.

The engine includes multiple meaning word perception, question answering technology, structured information as well as a new user experience model that dynamically adapt to types of queries for suitable results type. Kngine includes categorization of search results, to show ‘Available Results' on the same page, as well as concepts that show common types of information related to the search.

Haytem ElFadeel, founder of Kngine said in a statement: "We aim to organize human being's Systematic Knowledge and Experiences and make them accessible to everyone. We aim to collect and organize all objective data, and make it possible and easy to access. Our goal is to build Web 3.0 Web Search Engine on the advances of Web Search Engine, Semantic Web, and Data Representation technologies. Kngine is our first step toward our long-term goal."

The engine went live on Friday, after a three month beta period.
