Clusty -A Brief Interview About Clustering
Thread Description:

There's a brief interview with Saman Haqqi, Vivissimo's director of marketing about search clustering technology and the unfortunately named Clusty engine.

At Vivisimo we believe that Web searching needs to evolve beyond ‘ranking engines’ that simply list undifferentiated page results ranked by popularity, freshness and links - criteria that don’t do enough to make search results useful to searchers. Clustering lets users view results organized into categories like books organized neatly in bookshelves instead of being randomly piled on the floor. It allows users to quickly overview at least ten times as many results as they would with ranking engines where users rarely go beyond the first page.
