by , Comments

News from Yahoo that they have just opened new research labs in Chile and Spain. Yahoo has hired famed information scientist, Ricardo Baeza-Yates, to run these new facilities.

I've been monitoring Dr. Baeza-Yates web site for years looking for new research papers. If IR is of interest, this is one personal home page full of interesting material.

Thanks to Erin at Search Views for the news tip. More in this Financial Times article and official news release.

Yahoo has been steadily and impressively ramping up its research efforts in terms of new facilities and some very key hires:

+ Yahoo Opens NYC Research Center

+ Andrei Broder Joins Yahoo

+ Prabhakar Raghavan Hired To Lead Yahoo Research

+ Yahoo Announces New Research Laboratory (at UC Berkeley)

Btw, in November, Google opened a Latin American research center in Brazil.
