Baidu Beginning Work on a Film Search Engine

A report from ChinaTechNews says that Chinese search engine Baidu is recruiting technical staff, "to research and develop a new search tool for indexing millions of hours of movies."

The news brief does not speculate on how Baidu might use this technology.

In 2004 Google acquired a minority interest in Baidu and as News.com reported less than a a month ago, Google is also developing multimedia search technology.
