Econsultancy raised an interesting argument regarding the integration of real time features into conventional search engine formats. With Twitter and Facebook providing updates by the millisecond and the huge popularity that both have subsequently achieved, questions have been asked over whether the likes of Bing, Google and Yahoo should follow suit.
Well, as we’ve reported Bing have already integrated real-time search while Google are still finding real-time search ‘interesting’ – no news on Yahoo or the others. Bing’s first foray into the world of real-time (documented in Bing Unleash Real-Time Search) includes short snippets of some of the most popular Twitterati’s contributions.
However, the question posed by Econsultancy, which is incredibly valid, is what real use will this information have in a consumer society? If you’re looking for goods and services, real-time is unlikely to offer anything relevant. By tapping into millions of private conversations and an equally high number of marketing messages, what chance do you really have of finding exactly what you want?
Real-time only really comes into its own for news trends. Everything from entertainment gossip and hard news are distributed at an incredible pace, far faster than any news agency could ever achieve. At the moment, this is surely the only benefit of real-time search. Until significant filters are put in place, the old style of algorithmic searching with accuracy as the primary criteria won’t be toppled. Real-time has a future, an important one too, but work will need to be done if it is really going to come to define the way we all search.

The Drum Network has launched a new initiative called ‘Create Britain’ which aims to show the world that Great Britain is still an awesomely creative marketplace, despite Brexit.
Create Britain is an online interactive map that invites businesses from the creative industry to contribute a short video to claim their own pin on the map that links to their video clip. The video clips need to answer one question: ‘What makes British creativity so great?’.
When we think of reality headsets, our immediate thoughts go to viewing the world in a virtual reality (VR) from wherever we are in the world. Whether that be your own living room, office or business, VR headsets allow you to transport yourself into a completely different environment and immerse yourself in that world.
This is what makes HoloLens different.
