One of Danny Ayers' New Year resolutions:
"...text search, creation of triples using machine learning techniques...A server-side tools that combines Semantic Web and machine learning technologies to autodiscover connections between ideas."
It seems similar to some of Tim Bray's search vision Basic Resource Finder:
"BRF will have built in most of the lore on result ranking I wrote up earlier in this series, with the possible exception of Latent Semantic Indexing. Crucially, it will have some facilities to make it easy to feed back popularity and usage counts into the ranking heuristics."
