Before telling you about "Kosmix" I would like to tell you that there are only few hours remaining for the contest to end might be 5-6 hrs so please hurry if you still haven't participated.
Just read an article in my daily newspaper about an search engine called "Kosmix" which have a good potential of beating the Internet Giant "Google".The News remained a buzz for last few days since the two engineers (maker of Kosmix) who missed the chance of buying Google two times 10 years ago have received a huge funds worth $20 million from media and entertainment conglomerate Time Warner for their search site.
"Anand Rajarman and Venky Harinarayan, the Indian Internet entrepreneurs, have received $20 million of funding from Time Warner for their site," The Telegraph reported on Tuesday.
Way back in 1998, Google founder Sergey Brin offered fellow Stanford University PhD students Anand Rajarman and Venky Harinarayan the chance to buy the now search engine giant for about $1 billion.
"They said no," the report published online said.
The very next year, the Indian pair with Amazon backing offered $443 million. But Brin and Google co-founder Larry Page had refused to accept less than $1 billion, the publication noted.
Now Kosmix has also got the backing of Motorola chairman and chief executive Ed Zander and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
“We consider ourselves an explore engine. When you don’t know what’s interesting or know enough about a topic, you come to us. We’ve built algorithms based on topics that lead to a very different end point,” he said. “Google’s algorithms are about finding the best Web pages out there. It’s really, really hard to mess with that.” , Rajarman was quoted as saying.
"Kosmix allows you to browse a whole topic and suggests areas that it thinks you might be interested in," he added.
The truth is, both Google and Kosmix can co-exist. Which means between Google and Kosmix they have covered it all. Kosmix is relying on the fact that their first result is the result you are looking for. That always is not the truth. Kosmix is good for something we already know and want to know more. Quite contrary to their mission statement. Google with its clean interface would still be preferable for quick searches.
What do you think about this new "Kosmix" thing?
