Cognal Labs

Looking for exact answers? We’re rolling out the leading Natural Language Data Search tool, SayQL™, which converts natural language requests into SQL and returns immediate exact answers.

For over forty years people have wanted to use their natural language requests to get exact answers from computers, and more recently from their mobile devices. Not reams of documents to click through to get “close” to the correct answer, but real live facts. The problem facing search engines in finding exact facts from ad hoc user requests is two-fold: a) the answer to an ad hoc user request is by definition “ad hoc” (right now) and can’t be found by the nightly crawlers employed by search engines, and b) facts live in databases, and key-word search algorithms can’t semantically map the user’s natural language request into a database language like SQL.
