Simpli.com, Inc. is proud to announce the appointment of Dr. George A. Miller to its scientific advisory board. Dr. Miller, who has been advising Simpli.com since inception, officially begins his role on the scientific advisory board effective immediately. Dr. Miller, a preeminent scientist and one of the best known figures in psychology and linguistics, will be an active member of Simpli.com, Inc., supplying ideas, knowledge and expertise to the ongoing development of its patent-pending Internet search technology, SimpliFind(TM). The addition of Dr. Miller to Simpli.com(TM) reinforces the company's mission of providing users with an intuitive, meaning-based search technology resulting in unparalleled levels of accurate results.
"Of the many applications of WordNet that I have seen, Simpli.com's proprietary technology is by far the best," stated Dr. George A. Miller, Professor Emeritus at Princeton University and inventor of WordNet. "The concept of a meaning-based search, coupled with automatic query expansion, will dramatically improve the accuracy of search results with minimal effort by the user."
Awarded the National Medal of Science from President Bush in 1991, Dr. Miller has spent the past 15 years working on linguistic databases that model abstract semantic webs. This work has culminated with the development of WordNet, a relational semantic network that models the structure of human linguistic capabilities. Perhaps best known for his research on working memory (the magical number 7 +/- 2), Dr. Miller has authored papers with Noam Chomsky, written countless books and numerous articles for journals including Psychological Review, Science, and Scientific American, and his research has been cited in thousands of scientific, trade, and popular journals.
"Dr. Miller brings a wealth of knowledge and intellectual capital to the table and validates our technology as second to none," stated Jeffrey M. Stibel, Chairman and CEO of Simpli.com, Inc. "We are honored that Dr. Miller has joined our team--no other Internet search company in the world has the benefit of his counsel."
