Japan's NTT Announces New Search Technology

 5:41 am on Aug 7, 2002 (gmt 0)

"NTT Develops High Speed, Volume Net Search Engine"

From the article,
[asia.news.yahoo.com ]

"Nippon Telegraph & Telephone Corp. has developed a large-volume Internet search engine that works at high speed, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported in its Wednesday morning edition, citing company sources...The technology speeds up the search by simultaneously carrying out such operations as data collection, organization and classification, providing results considerably faster than existing consecutive searches. Internet search engine technology has gone from the "first generation," when users had to gather data online manually, to the current "third generation," in which related sites are automatically analyzed. NTT characterizes its newest engine as a "fourth-generation" technology."

The story mentions that an "experimental" version of the engine will be made available on NTT's Goo search engine site today. I've done some prelimanary checking and haven't been unable to find any additional English info on the NTT-X or Goo sites.

Could that be related to openfind? (discussed in previous threads)

Doubt it, Openfind is in Taiwan.

I finally made some sense out of the Goo page, using Babelfish.

The search button marked NEWS on the front page of Goo ( [goo.ne.jp...] ) will lead to a search using the new search engine.

Alternatively, you may go to this page:
