Yahoo! Hires Ricardo Baeza-Yates

1 comment

Ricardo Baeza-Yates wrote Modern Information Retrieval, which is considered to be the book on search. Yahoo! recently announced they hired him:

Ricardo Baeza-Yates will run research centres in Barcelona and Santiago, the company said. As co-author of Modern Information Retrieval, a widely-used textbook on the subject, he is one of only a handful of academic experts in the field around the world, said Prabhakar Raghavan, head of Yahoo Research.

About 8 months ago Yahoo! bought TeRespondo. Google has won Europe. Is Yahoo! looking to South America for growth?

He has been pumping out semantic web software for the masses....
