Indian 16 Years boy Made a Search Engine 47% More Accurate Then Google


Google, headed by Indian origin CEO Sundar Pichai, is one of the most path-breaking mass technologies of the 21st century and many believed that it is impossible to better the algorithms written by Sergey and Larry Page. But Indian origin teen Anmol Tukrel has now designed a personalized search engine which is said to be 47 per cent more accurate than Google.

What’s baffling is that Tukrel has just completed his tenth grade and took a couple of months to design the search engine as part of his submission into the Google Science Fair. All he needed for this summer project was a python-language development environment, a spreadsheet program and access to the godfather itself, Google.

Although the testing of the software was limited to news articles from The New York Times, the results even on such a small sample are quite encouraging. Tukrel has explained that his search engine is better because it not only uses factors such as location, browsing history, and the apps installed on one’s phone or computer but also tries and understand the content of the text, understanding it’s meaning and directing those matches on the results screen.

Tukrel is a student of Holy Trinity School in Toronto, and learned to code in the third grade. “My computer teacher was pretty impressed with the project. I skipped a year in computer science, so they knew I was good, but may be not so good,” said Tukrel, speaking to TOI.

Tukrel hopes to study computer science at Stanford University one day and develop a news aggregator based on his innovative technology. Tukrel also runs a company through his parents’ consent called Tacocat Computers which, in his own geeky way, has a palindromic name.

If his search engine can be reliable over large chunks of data then we may have a path-breaking search engine which might redefine the way we access information.
