    Keyword search is dead?

    Keyword search is dead?

    Perhaps we might rather say that other search modalities are now showing more signs of life? Though perhaps also distinguish keyword search from fulltext search or with reference to various ways searching is mediated (from stopwords to noindex and search query length limits) When is keyword search still particularly valuable? (Cmd/Ctrl+F is still very alive?) How does keyword search have a role in addressing hallucination?

    Surely though, one exciting thing about this moment is how much people are reimagining what search can be.
