Sun Microsystems Working on Search Software



Looks like Sun is working on three different software projects that are designed to help the world find what it needs.

Lots of details, but here’s the 411…

…a system that studies the sound qualities of a song a user likes. It uses that information to find similar or diverse music, depending on the listener’s mood.

…software that would automatically organize text documents into folders with related files.

…the speech search project, Sun researchers are using speech recognition technology to create a searchable index of text. It combines that with time stamps on the recording so users can zero in on the audio snippet they’re looking for.

There you go, that should save you a few minutes of reading. ;-)
