DEVONagent saving a guppy’s life

DEVONagent topics map

Today I had a success experience with DEVONagent that nicely shows where our software really shines, and so I wanted to share it with you. We have an aquarium now for a couple of weeks and three days ago a few of our fishes began to first show signs of “eaten” fins, then they died. Therefore I used DEVONagent today to find out what is wrong with them. Both our pet shop guy and our booklets had their suspections but, working for DEVONtechnologies, I had to start researching on my own, too. I used the following query and the standard Internet (Fast Scan) search set:

(guppy OR guppies) NEAR (fin NEAR/2 rot) NEAR/20 (remedy OR treatment)

DEVONagent delivered eleven documents and the above topics map — including a some very clear instructions on self-diagnosis and possible treatments. I have not visited a single web page, the topics map and the digest delivered all necessary information right away. Of course I archived this search run for future reference.

    I own DevonThink Pro myself but I’m not so sure about this is such a great example of superiority. Just type your search terms “guppy fin rot treatment” into Google and your first link has your treatment (Antibiotics) ready for you.


  2. @Marc: That may be true in this case, but DEVONagent delivered a lot of more details without having me visit a single page. And it let me play with the results, navigate the digest etc.

    Plus you get to play with the fun little spidery thing. Way better than google.

    If AI of DA so clever and intelligent it would be a great pleasure when devon-technologies would present clever convincing search results.
