CAMBRIDGE, England, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- True Knowledge (www.trueknowledge.com), a search company pioneering a new approach to natural language search, announces that the Web site officially surpassed more than three million users in the month of August 2010, and the site's database now contains more than 300 million facts. Additionally, True Knowledge's user base is 26 times what it was a year ago, while growth in facts is 31% year-to-date in 2010. Founded in 2005, True Knowledge's goal is to power a new, complementary kind of search experience where users can access the world's knowledge simply by asking for the information they need in a way that is completely natural to them, and as if they were talking to another human being.
All of True Knowledge's traffic of more than three million was generated by Web and mobile users, with none resulting from paid marketing. The more than 300 million facts in the Web site's knowledge base contains massive quantities of common sense, lexical and factual knowledge and is the basis for how True Knowledge models the world and can interpret and answer users' questions.
"Our significant fact growth count means that True Knowledge can answer many more questions about many more subjects," said William Tunstall-Pedoe, Founder and CEO of True Knowledge. "Our system is really powered by knowledge, so growth in facts directly ties to end-user utility, and that expansion directly influences and reflects our growth in users."
True Knowledge is able to answer questions asked in plain English because of its unique approach to structured and lexical knowledge. By using an ever-growing knowledgebase of more than 300 million facts about millions of objects, classes, attributes and relations, True Knowledge is able to infer trillions of additional facts and provide direct, perfect responses to questions.
