Hakia Search Engine

I don't know how many of you may have heard of this company but there is a new concept in search engine technology. This is where you type a sentence and the engine tries to understand both the words and the meaning of your search. There are a number of companies out there looking into this and one of them has a significant Turkish element to it.

Te company in question is called Hakia and is based in New York with a satellite office in Istanbul. The founder is a fellow by the name of Dr Rize Can Berkan who I believe has been in the US for a while and at one time represented Galatsaray in water polo amongst other achievements.

Just though other Amerikan Turks out there might like to know about this and setting aside loyalties check out the engine.
