Convera Plans to Enter Web Search Marketplace

by , Comments

The Washington Post article: Agencies Find What They're Looking For, takes a look at Convera, a popular provider of search technology to many government agencies (CIA, FBI, etc.)

The article concludes with the news that Convera plans to enter the commercial web search marketplace next year.

"...Convera plans to make its Internet search engine available to regular computer users for free sometime next year. In that business segment, Convera would seek to profit through the sale of online advertising, which is growing. Convera's search results, based on proprietary technology, would be different from those provided by Google and Yahoo, [CEO Patrick] Condo said. 'We have applied technology we built for the intelligence community to an advanced development project to index the Web,' Condo said."
