Digging for more TechFest 2010 info has given me reason to comb the always-interesting Microsoft Research site. My latest find (which the company may or may not show off at this week’s TechFest 2010 research showcase) is a research project known as Microsoft SONGO (Search on the Go).
Microsoft has expunged most of the Songo references from the Microsoft Research (MSR) site
and many from Google. But not from Bing. SONGO is “a mobile search and advertisement cache architecture for mobile devices,”
according to the cached Bing site. SONGO allows most user-submitted queries to be served locally without having to use the 3G link.
