    Read about this the other week WW, and never got to dig deeper and still have not had time, but this would be an interesting development if they get the amount of computing power and engine to do all they say, its been tried in the past IIRC by Ask Jeeves, in which you ask a question in plain english and get best fit, dunno if it was sucessful at all.

    Clustering engine searchs are seeming to be the best ones of late as they catagorise your search, so you can narrow down and remove items you dont want or at least drill down the branches over having to tailor your search question or use advanced options.

    Would love to try out an alpha or beta of this.

    If anyone can get hold of a beta of this your the man Halo;)
    If the inventor does team up with Wikipedia we can expect a few mistakes tho:-D

    Supposed to come out in one form or another this month according to CNet and apparently only for science types at first. Better be better than 'Ask Jeeves'.rolleyes

    Teams up with google and all the results will be a hijackthis log file ;)

    Science talk for not developed yet, still in lab as theoretical ;) in seriousness the engine (as well as data spider) is going to have to be not only damm quick but ultra accurate to cope with the variables in a users search, and to have 1000 staff monitoring quality, seems a small amount compaired to the amount of data that will be on the net.

    Hope they have alot of freetime to do this, even wikipedia likely has enough data to keep 1000s of experts in various fields busy for years making sure its accurate.

    Still curious to see how this pans out as it could be a monumental failure or best thing since the invention of the WWW
