Silobreaker Launches News Search Service at DEMO 08

Relational Analysis and Graphical Search Results Provide Users with Contextual Insight Into News and Current Events

Palm Desert, CA – Silobreaker, innovative search service for news and current events, announced today at DEMO, the world’s leading event for introducing new products and companies, the official release of its new service, making it available at

More than a news aggregator, Silobreaker provides relevance by looking at the data it finds like a person does. It recognizes people, companies, topics, places and keywords; understands how they relate to each other in the news flow, and puts them in context for the user. The graphical search results enables users to quickly and easily understand connections, trends and topics or navigate deeper into the most relevant stories for them. No other news search service provides such an extensive suite of contextual tools in the industry today.

Silobreaker pulls content on global issues, science, technology and business from approximately 10,000 news, blog, research and multimedia sources. With the engine’s focus on finding and connecting related data in the information flow, Silobreaker’s user tools and visualizations are ideal for bringing meaning to content from either today’s Web or the evolving Semantic Web, or both.

“If you do online research, bookmark Silobreaker. The smart context extraction and relational analysis of Silobreaker is by far the best I have seen in the semantic search space,” commented Chris Shipley, founding partner and editorial director of Guidewire Group, and executive producer of DEMO. “Silobreaker quickly becomes indispensable; it is an invaluable research tool with a sophisticated algorithm that I’d like to see proliferate in the search market.”

Despite the commoditization of information, today’s news and information services continue to focus on the supply of content and data. Very few can meet user demands for context and relevance.

“It’s no secret that the news industry as well as other information providers are being challenged to change. Information is everywhere and now it’s time to make sense of it all,” commented Silobreaker CEO, Kristofer Mansson. “Silobreaker provides a service that combines both aggregation and sense-making analytics; capable of answering time-sensitive and business-critical questions, as well as general queries, and we want it to be accessible to everyone.”

Along with individuals, current Silobreaker users include corporations, banks, consultants, journalists, universities, scientists, military organizations and other government bodies. Silobreaker is for anyone who wants in-depth perspective on up-to-date news - for personal or professional reasons.

“As the leading provider of independent pricing data in the global credit markets, our customers also depend on us to deliver news and research so they can make highly informed business decisions,” commented Lance Uggla, CEO of Markit Group Ltd. “Silobreaker provides an innovative news aggregation service which sets them apart from other news sites because of their in-depth search approach and graphic representation of the findings. We are working with Silobreaker to broaden and enhance Markit’s products with this novel way of analyzing the news.”
