Heceta is part of the Fogcutter suite of tools for building intelligent applications. It is an "enterprise social search" search engine that leverages all of the various bits of information from Neddick, Quoddy, and other source of "social" knowledge to provide better, deeper, and more insightful search results than you can get from simple document content analysis. Intranet searching in organizations is usually very poor, largely because page-rank type algorithms don't work well due to the lack of links between documents. But by supplementing the content analysis with scoring based on tags, social graph connections, activity-stream information, etc., and applying machine-learning / artificial-intelligence techniques, Heceta can do a superior job of locating the knowledge and information a user needs.
