But certainly you may have seen if you type a single word and google it, there are suggestions appears bottom of your result page. Suppose the word is "Srilanka" then you may see a result like below.
Here they have treated the word Srilanka not just as a syntax of a web page but an additional added weight to gain its meaning as it is. Search Engine has been able to identify that Srilanka is a country and hence it is suggesting you to do following related searches also if need, like "srilanka map", "srilanka news" etc. Though you see it every day, did you simply ignore it or didn't want to go further with it or thought as this is also a kind of ordinary query searching methodology.
Of course this is some what like alpha version of semantic SE and this will not appear if it is not just a single word. The issue is, google is pretty much considering about their query retrieving performance and so when it comes to several words underline process complexity goes wild and therefore time consumption gets increasingly high.
How ever there are several semantically semantic search engines. "hakia" is a one such and you can make use of it via www.hakia.com. Hopefully there will be an another rat race of semantic era.

When it comes to a country like us, of course we have several fall backs and humps towards to the ward sustainable. If I ask what is the key advantage that we have as Sri Lankan's is our position in Asian ocean. We have learnt of it heard of it since our child hoods. But literally doubts are there whether our leaders know that well when we peer in to the actions they should have decided years a go. Thing I want to focus is that we have ocean all around us. We are a tropical country. We have rain forests covering up considerable sand of our land. Wind & Sun rise is of course there. Our holy land is strength enough to grow bio crops too.
I am addressing these issues because in the sense of sustainability, We should give priority to efficient consumption of energy sources and adapt according to melting of those. That means now world is moving towards various kind of re new able energy sources rather than just staying with fossil fuels. One thing is for sure that if demand for the fossil fuel remains as now, there will be a potential risk of world to be in dark. More than 80% of our energy consumption is depending on fuel and one of the coal power station is developing to add up with it. We cant afford for nuclear power plants too. Scientists have found out and even manufactured vehicles those work on re new able energy sources like solar power, wind and even in bio crops like sugar cane. Some local people also have done researches and found out nature friendly vehicles and electronic devices. These innovative and talented creations should have been applied to development process of the country through good hands practically.

For my 3rd year survey report, i have selected the topic "Adaptive Game Design". So I am doing some researches on it. I would like to share what I got familiar with this field so far as an Introduction (Below is an abstraction of my interim report)
When compare a commercial game with a specific commercial software product both in similar capacity, still publishers or rather companies tend to fear for directly involving for just games. That is why yet only a few leading well-known gaming companies are in the market. It is true that most of the games have indeed a real competitive game play. What developers try to do is make a player centered game which can satisfy its players at best while granting a competitiveness plus joy. AI for games has reached to its top today. Game world has been able to behave like in the real world with help of the advance physic and mathematical functions. Throughout the processes like modeling agents, coding, alpha, beta and game play testing, and making development kits for bugs and modifications, developers often concern for a particular limited group of potential users.
Throughout the history there are so many research papers have been written and have been practically applied for small scale games. Adaptation is a major topic not only in games but biological experiments, outer space explorations, nano evolutionary theory and many other engineering aspects. But what it differs from each field is that what technology optimally suits and in what extent it is going to be applied.
In this paper it is going to be demonstrated that still highly aggressive and competitive game play can be achieved with exceptive efficiency, effectively and robustness with help of dynamically adaptive gaming concepts and technologies. This adaptively can be either learning without human interaction (offline) or learning with human interaction during game play (online) . This paper concerns most about online adaptive game development and its feasibility with current gaming life cycle. Adaptation can be defined as “ability to make appropriate responses to changed or changing circumstances”  plus learn from its past mistakes and acting like smart.
When it comes to the player’s role, there can be players those who are really smart thinking and play the game with their own logics. But some takes much time for completing a level and some are aggressive. Each of them has different views to the game and of course implementing a game which is capable of satisfying majority of these groups can be really hard to achieve. But throughout the playing life cycle of the game, modeling each player to a default weight and while in the game play, adjusting this weight to fit with player’s performance regarding the knowledge gathers from online statistics and player head up displays (HUDs) updates, adaptive decision making system can established inside the game.
