Excerpt from Wired from interview with Kai Yu, CEO of Bidhu, China’s largest search engine:

Today, web searches for products or services give you little more than long list of links, and “then it’s your job to read through all of those webpages to figure out what’s the meaning,” Yu says. But he wants something that works very differently.

We need to fundamentally change the architecture of the whole system,”
– Yu explains.

That means building algorithms that can identify images and understand natural language and then parse the relationships between all the stuff on the web and find exactly what you’re looking for. It other words, it wants algorithms that work like people. Only faster.
