Distributed Search Engines, Licensed Media Distribution > Project Pandango Inc.
Project Pandango Inc. is a company formed by the i5 Digital LLC intellectual
property development company to launch a search engine based upon their Pandango
(taken from the Latin word "Pando," meaning to extend) Peer-To-Peer Web search
technology. In addition, third party companies will be able to license a private
label version of the search engine that employs personalization features to
target a specific area, such as sports or finance.
The XML-based Pandango mixes Peer-To-Peer technology with a distributed version
of collaborative filtering (a technology used by the Google engine). Patterns of
searches by other like-minded searchers are leveraged to arrive at what the
company claims are newer and more relevant results. (Search companies using
traditional methods disagree, and predict a downside of slower searches.)
