Bill Gates: MSN Search Will Soon “More than Match” Google in Terms of Relevance

In an interview with Information Week, Bill Gates talks about Microsoft Research and speaks briefly about search and of course mentions a competitor that begins with the letter “G”. Gates says that coming soon MSN will have “more than matched” Google in terms relevance. Here’s the full passage:

Gates says:

Search is an amazing example where we relied somewhat on an outside company, Inktomi, which Yahoo bought, then decided to build our own search effort essentially from scratch. Now, in a very short period of time, we will actually have more than matched the kind of relevance that Google can deliver. The role of Microsoft Research in that has been phenomenal.
