Blinkx, the web application that helps you find releated material based on the context of what you’re currently viewing in your browser window (they call it implicit query), has a new verision (Blinkx 2.0) available. I’m going to download the new version (it’s a 6.7 MB file) and spend some time testing it out. Stay tuned.
From the news release,
A key attribute of 2.0 is the introduction of the worlds first Smart Folders. Smart Folders are intelligent folders that automatically update their content as new information becomes available based on the ideas contained within the content of those files. Each Smart Folder contains content from multiple sources that is individually relevant to each individual, and acts as a persistent implicit query. Other features announced today include “Stuff Ive Seen” (SIS), which acts as a contextual historical record of an individuals viewed files, and the ability of blinkx 2.0 to implicitly query peer-to-peer networks.
NOTE: Microsoft Research also has protoype named Stuff I’ve Seen.
Blinkx is available for MS 2000 and XP only.
