Smart Search

I don't usually pay much attention to Apple's upcoming OSX releases. Today though, I'll make an exception. Apple's new Spotlight search technology looks pretty cool.

It closely parallels the Smart Search system we designed at CMU last semester for the Microsoft miLife project. Which is a nice confirmation that we weren't just spinning our wheels for five months. We conceived Smart Search as a way to make it easier to find things on a mobile device, but we also recognized that the technology could make things better on a regular desktop. That's what Apple's doing. I'm really looking forward to seeing their implementation.
