We express an information need as a keyword query and submit it to a search engine. However, search engines index data like text, databases, and knowledge graphs. Such a mismatch between queries and data, as well as the ambiguity of queries, hurt the accuracy of search, which is expected to be improved by <span style="font-weight:bold">semantic search</span>. Further, users are not likely to read a large number of results returned by a search engine. <span style="font-weight:bold">Data summarization</span> provides an overview of the results to be read quickly.
