Building blocks for semantic search engines: Ranking and compact indexing in entity-relation graphs

We see an evolutionary path to supporting semantic search over text facilitated by

  1. extractors and annotators for ever-growing collections of entity and relation types and
  2. search systems that exploit a smooth continuum between structured entities and relations on one hand and uninterpreted text on the other.

The extractors and annotators will be imperfect and incomplete.
