first_imgThese sorts of complaints highlight the problem with reviewing cutting edge technologies when they’re still in such a raw format – people go there expecting Google, find what appears to be a boring research experiment and then become disillusioned. What they fail to see – what they cannot see, in fact – is that a cursory glance can’t reveal the technology behind the site or service. The technology in DeepDyve, for instance, involves advanced algorithms that other engines don’t even have yet. The usability issues will be addressed in time and the issues with access to content behind paywalls could always eventually be worked out through partnership deals. But that business side of the DeepDyve project isn’t anywhere nearly as interesting as the potential of gaining access to 99.8% more of the Internet! Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is joining the advisory board of the research engine DeepDyve, a search engine designed to scour the “deep web.” This “deep web” is an area of the internet that isn’t currently indexed by modern-day search engines like Google and yet consists of an estimated 99.8% of the Internet. Any company that is able to successfully tap into this data will be the one to introduce the next breakthrough technology in search as we know it. Will that be DeepDyve?Wozniak Joins DeepDyveAccording to Wozniak, most of the information on the web is “collecting dust because nobody’s come up with a way to mine the data in a way that’s useful to researchers and consumers.” He believes that DeepDyve has the potential to transform Deep Web search and says he’s “excited to bring about that transformation.” Wozniak’s role at DeepDyve isn’t limiting in any way, but the company expects that his contributions will focus on the DeepDvye technology, especially as it relates to the user experience. As a member of the Advisory Board, he will also meet formally with the company twice per year. DeepDyve is Not GoogleDeepDyve is currently known for their KeyPhrase technology which lets you type in anything in their search box from a few words to entire paragraphs that you copy and paste.  The search engine’s algorithm itself was developed by two scientists who worked on the Human Genome Project.  As with that project, which required using pattern-matching techniques across large amounts of data, there’s also a need for search engines that can analyze large amounts of data in the same way. That’s precisely what DeepDyve does. Typically, keyword search on other engines breaks down as queries grow in length – but not on DeepDyve. The more search terms you enter, the more relevant your results. The DeepDyve engine actually encourages longer search queries. This type of search technique certainly comes at a good time, as our query length is growing each year, with 8-plus keyword searches having increased 20% year-over-year as of February, 2009. Progress and ProblemsWe looked at DeepDyve back in September when it was still behind a paywall, then reviewed it again in November when they introduced a free version. At the time, we noted that there were still some issues with any “deep web” search engine – most notably that a lot of the information which DeepDyve uncovers is still behind additional paywalls on subscription-based web sites. Today, that issue still remains.However, the complaints of many of the commenters on the last post were not about the paywalls but about how the site forced you to register before you could do any searches. As one anonymous commenter noted, to paraphrase, “if you’re going to launch a search engine, open it up so people can use it.”It seems DeepDyve took that advice. The search box on the homepage is immediately accessible and even the results pages have a more refined look today than they did only a few months prior.

first_imgWhile you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member. It’s a big ask from us to you, but it also comes with a load of benefits like ad-free browsing (ads stink!), access to our premium room in The Chamber and monthly giveaways.The other thing it does is help stabilize our business into the future. As it turns out, sending folks on the road to cover games and provide 24/7 Pokes coverage like the excellent article you just read costs money. Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. OSU was able to limit Pitt to five punts and an INT on its final six drives. That gave the offense a chance to drive the dagger in later with Rudolph’s deep bomb to Jhajuan Seales. A lightning delay that might have saved the season following a call that got 10 referees suspended for two weeks that tried to submerge it. What a world. Glenn Spencer said in a post-game presser that the overtime helped him and the coaching staff make some adjustments on the Panthers’ constant quick motion, something that we talked about last week.“A mixture of the delay and we put in another wrinkle after that,” Spencer told the Oklahoman. “Wish it wouldn’t have to come down to that. It’s just so hard to simulate that with scout team. You chew on them about the speed of it, and gosh, they were running the edges fast. Had to simplify things a little bit.”“The lightning delay gave us a great chance to go in and redraw offense and defense, change our schemes, walk through and get prepared for the remainder of the game,” added Mike Gundy.The defense certainly defended the quick motion better after the delay. When Pitt ran it in the fourth quarter, the Cowboys played against it well. The outermost defender would outflank the blocker, forcing the ball carrier to cut back inside, where a dropped safety and/or outside linebacker was waiting. Didn’t work every time, but it did work in these two instances.last_img read more

first_imgzoom Indian Minister of Shipping has called upon all automobile manufactures to use coastal shipping mode for transporting their vehicles.Shri Nitin Gadkari, the country’s Minister of Shipping, Road Transport & Highways and Water Resources, River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, informed that, besides saving time, coastal transport will also be more cost effective and environment friendly.The announcement was made on October 28, when the Minister digitally flagged off a vessel MV IDM DOODLE carrying a consignment of 185 trucks from Chennai Port to Mongla port in Bangladesh.These trucks, which are being exported by M/s.Ashok Leyland Ltd, were being sent to Bangladesh through the land route before, travelling a distance of about 1500 km. Transport by sea is expected to save 15-20 days of travel time.M/s.Ashok Leyland, which is currently exporting truck chassis to Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, as well as other countries in Africa, expects to increase its exporting volume by 80% in the coming years. More than 500 trucks per month are expected to be exported via the sea route.The Coastal Shipping Agreement between India and Bangladesh was signed during Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s visit to Bangladesh in June 2015. Based on the agreement sea transportation from Indian ports to Bangladesh ports is being treated as coastal movement, making it eligible for 40% concession on vessel related and cargo related charges. For coastal movement through RoRo vessels, 80% concession on vessel related and cargo related charges are applicable in Indian ports.last_img read more
