Google Acquires Social Search Engine Aardvark

http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/editors/24802/

search giant is aggressively pursuing social features… Aardvark, an interesting search startup that integrates social interaction and artificial intelligence… Aardvark uses artificial intelligence to find the right people to answer a user’s query. It then trusts those people to provide the desired information and refine the query as needed… found it invaluable for answering questions that benefit from human guidance or opinion. It’s a great place, for example, to ask “How do I get started making electronic music?” or “What’s a mind-blowing novel of first contact?”… Aardvark works well partly due to close integration with Facebook, and Google doesn’t seem to be on the social networking company’s, ahem, friends list… early negative reactions to the automatically generated social networks for Google’s new product Buzz.
