Many of our users ask how the JADE magic occurs. Our JADE legal research platform uses the latest technologies to bring you the information you need.
Here are some never before seen photos of our next generation search engine. But first, let us show you how far we have come.
The first generation legal search system
You will be familiar with first generation legal search systems. You may have used them to undertake Australian legal research back in the late 1990s. Few people know how they work. For most people, they do not work very well. When we were trying to understand how to improve legal research, we developed a few prototypes of these early systems. You can see from the photo below how they were plainly insufficient for the needs of the modern legal professional researcher.
As the speed of research increased, the wheel to the left overheated and caused the retrieval system to over retrieve irrelevant information. Then it caught fire and this photo is all we have left of that fateful research experiment.
The JADE Next Generation Search Engine
Who says that technological advances cannot also look good on the outside? In the past years, we have invested heavily in improving all aspects of JADE.
