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.)
