ICE: Internet Concept Explorer

Introspect Technologies
The COOLEST way to explore the Internet!

ICE: a tactile, visual and fun way to search, research and understand.

Look-up searches are easy-peasy, right? But what happens when you're wanting to investigate a subject in more width and depth? When you're not sure which search engine to choose? Which terms to start with? Yikes! You could spend HOURS poking around different search engines, diving down different rabbit holes, digging around until your eyeballs hurt!

When you want to avoid all the drain and strain of exploration, ICE to the rescue!

ICE reads and summarizes hundreds of search engine results in a few seconds. It allows you to swiftly view relationships between your initial search term and other potentially important connected entities. Just like that, ICE helps you see the BIG PICTURE in living color and then allows you to focus on specifically what you need to find...with just the tap of a finger! ICE's visual, graphical nature, with its one-touch selection/deselection features, makes in-depth searching efficient, enlightening, and entertaining!

ICE works while you're thinking and thinks while you're working (or even daydreaming, if you'd rather)....

Bottom line: ICE saves huge time and energy. It goes without saying we could all use more of those!


Also very important to know about ICE:

ICE HAS NO ADS: Ads can be really distracting, especially when you want to learn.

PRIVACY: ICE is a straight-up, "you pay for it, you got it" product. We don't collect personal info to aim ads at you or for any other reason, nor will we ever track, store or report searches.


How ICE works:

- You type in initial exploratory search terms or concepts.
- ICE issues those terms to a variety of search engines and retrieves over 15 pages of results.
- ICE analyzes those results for significant entities and concepts relating to your search.
- ICE presents this cloud of related concepts graphically, allowing you to see a bigger picture view of your area of interest. You conveniently tap/choose the concepts you are most intrigued by. You can retrieve the information you want now, or by selecting related concepts continue to hone your search more specifically.

All this in just a few seconds!

If you're a researcher of any ilk, you'll be gleeful! If you're a student, you are going to have WAY more fun tracking down information for reports and projects, and learn a lot more interesting stuff in the process.

If you're an everyday searcher who just wants to save time, or you don't know exactly what you're looking for, ICE is for you! ICE's exploratory search goes wide and deep, and is great for disambiguation, when one is not sure exactly which search terms to use. You can slide in from the side, so to speak, by entering what you DO know. When ICE brings back its cool cloudful of results you can start tracking down exactly what you want to know about, so much more efficiently than you ever could using conventional search.

ICE also includes INtra, which allows you to combine searches to see how various concepts intersect, giving even deeper insight. What INtra can do in just a few seconds is the equivalent of a ton of research! For example, in normal research you might spend hours sifting thru search results, reading many pages to see if you can find related data, and manually recording all the concepts, keywords and entities on a handwritten list. Then you might do the same for a related search......then comparing the two lists for commonalities. Using ICE's INtra technology, you can accomplish this in mere minutes: ICE does all the heavy lifting!

Whether saving you time, energy, or even money, the high-tech algorithms driving ICE deliver. Artful and visually entertaining, ICE puts the FUN back into SEARCH!
