[ The AI question ]

My personal AI comment.

Don't want to disappoint you. But no, this is not an AI based search engine. Only created from the human mind. By a single human being. Developed over many years and only based on constant thought and improvement.

But to ask this too: What is actually being sold as AI? The collection of lots and lots of data from lots and lots of sources. Combined as a result with more or less meaningful combinations from all this jumble of data.

Sphider-plus is much more modest. After indexing one or more sites on the Internet (with all their content), you can search for words or media data that contain the indexed pages. Somehow much more modest, but effective if you want to make your content more transparent for the users of your pages. And without a back door to any search engines that collect data for their own purposes in order to market the results for themselves.

Was that self-promotion, or just an attempt to fit Sphider-plus into the current AI hypothesis?
