The facility will be charged with creating software search tools for Google. It is expected to create as many as 100 new high-tech jobs in the Pittsburgh area over the next few years, said Craig Nevill-Manning, director of Google's New York engineering office.

"There were smart people who lived in Pittsburgh who wanted to keep living in Pittsburgh," he said at a news conference, explaining the company's reasons for coming to the city.

The office will be headed by Andrew Moore, a Carnegie Mellon professor of computer science and robotics who currently runs a research laboratory of 30 students, programmers and faculty members. Moore, 40, is an expert in data mining and artificial intelligence.

Despite reports from state economic development officials that the Google office would be in CMU's tech-heavy Collaborative Innovation Center, Google representatives said an office site has yet to be decided on, but said the operation will be headed by Andrew Moore, a CMU computer science and robotics professor who chairs a lab that tracks patterns in data.

Well, then they can't be *that* smart. ;)

Sorry, had to say it. :)

They'll be able to tap some serious talent in Pittsburgh. CMU turns out brilliant CS grads and the Pitt IS dept is (at least used to be) one of the top in the country.

I went to grad school at Pitt, and was surprised at what a great city it is. Definitely not what I expected.

And I second skibum's rating of the talent to be found there: top notch.

Search engine Vivisimo happens to be headquartered in Pittburgh and has a Carnegie Mellon connection - it was founded by CMU faculty. Perhaps Google wants to keep an eye on Vivisimo. ;-)

Also you can get a 5 bedroom McMansion in N Pitts for the price of a two car garage in Mountain View.
