The European search engine project Quaero will receive 400 million Euro (US$ 508 million) in new funding from the German and French governments and industry.
"In the article Wolfgang Wahlster, the director of DFKI (Deutsche Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz/ The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence), is quoted as saying that Quaero is not only to deliver lists of search results. The service is also to give precise answers to questions.
Furthermore, the search engine will not only include web pages and scanned books, but also multimedia content like music and video."
