More On MSN’s Neural Net Technology

I previously blogged Greg Linden’s
post about MSN new search technology earlier, but he’s since updated it to try and
translate into plain English what the neural net technlogy does. As I thought, it is a case of teaching/training the system what’s "right" for certain things and then hoping
it will discover the right signals to let it locate more right things automatically. Want to discuss? Join our forum thread,
June 2005 MSN Search Update & Neural Net Tech. For more background, see
