    With regards to the tech in these lists …. people think the technology is further along than it actually is because they believe marketing material and what they hear at conferences. Search engines have been promising, and wanting to understand the true intent behind searches and even predict what you’re going to search for next, since 2000. There are too many databases across too many companies (or business units within companies … even at Google) to make any of this actually happen anytime soon.
