How about a Hindi search engine? After developing the world's first search engine for Tamil language websites, AUKBC Foundation are in the process of developing one.
The foundation, Bhaskar said, was also looking at developing internet search engines in other languages like Malayalam, Telegu and Kannada.
The AUKBC was now self-sufficient by earning handsome revenues through the various research products. For instance, the Tamil language search engine 'Kazhugu' (Tamil for eagle), which was hosted on the Sify website, generates income for the foundation.
The AUKBC foundation had, earlier, developed a news aggregator tool, which was also used by Sify in Hindi, Tamil and Telegu. Titled 'Swayambu', the tool is a self-generating newspaper in these four languages, Bhaskar said.
Another development by the foundation was the 'translingual information accessor' which can search classified matrimony advertisements based on key words and give the results after translation into Tamil. Though the search will be done on English language also, the user gets the results in Tamil.
