It's time you got some answers...

Swingly was a Web scale question-answering engine that found exact answers to factual questions. Development started in Spring 2008, and our beta launch occurred in August 2010.

Swingly was based on a simple idea: what if you could turn the Web into the world's largest FAQ? We believed that if you could index specific answers (and not just documents), you could help people find the information they were looking for more quickly and easily than with traditional search.  

Swingly was built by a small team (including Ying Shi, Tobias Jungen, Jeremy Bensley, John Williams, and me) -- but benefited immeasurably from the excellent natural language processing and natural language understanding software developed at Language Computer Corporation.
