In just a few months and only 60 hours of programming, he created a search engine more precise that the Google one, and plans to revolution searching on the Internet.
Will Anmol Tukrel, canadian student, be the new Sergei Brin (co-fondateur de Google), or le next Elon Musk, Tesla founder? It’s too soon to tell, but that guy got the talent to become one of the next future new technology giant.
His first project, realized during the Google Science Fair (a contest for less than 18 years old kids) even impressed some professionals. It’s a search engine that, according to the tests, would be 47% more precise than the one of Google. The student created this search engine all by himself.
Conception took a few months, and coding in Python (a programming language) necessited 60 hours. To achieve that, he only needed a simple computer and a spreadsheet. Talking about his skills, he says he got them during coding lessons in school.
A very secret algorithm
The advantage of this search engine is its algorithm that put the search in relation with the user personality, in order to find the most precise results possible. Those results are obtained taking in account keywords, search history and mobile application installed on mobile devices (smartphones and tablets).
The young genius will not reveal more. But he publicated his tests online. In order to test the efficiency of this tool, Anmol limited himself to the New York Times’ news. He created fake users with different interests and personalities.
If his future looks promising, the student does not plan to quit studying and integrate a big hi-tech corporation. He would like to complete his studies and integrate the Stanford university in California. In parallel, he wants to continue to manage his startup Tacocat Computers. And when we ask him what does it take to create this company, he answers: “Just the authorization of my parents”.
