Microsoft Live Labs Announces Winners

Microsoft Live Labs announced 12 winners of its Accelerating Search in Academic Research request for proposals. They accepted applications from universities that will improve search technologies, data mining, and discovery and analysis. Each winner will be awarded between $25,000 and $50,000 to continue their efforts. They will also gain access to “extensive data logs from MSN to aid in their research, as well as an increased quota of queries to the MSN Search software development kit.”

It will be interesting to find out if the projects are going to be released to the public. I wouldn’t mind “Aggregating Answers From Multiple Web Sources.”
