Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

Britney Spears and Google's spelling Correction System

Google frequently gives suggestions when you run a search suggesting an spelling correction in the search string, which appears something like 'Did you mean:Britney Spears?'.

Google has an interesting trivia page around Britney Spears and Google's spelling correction system. It lists out hundreds of spelling errors people made when they intended to search "Britney Spears" on Google. It also lists out the frequency of such errors in a two month time period(does not say the specific start and end dates though). What is remarkable is the robustness of Google's spelling correction system in detecting a wide variety of errors.

According to GoogleGuide, the system was developed by a bright Google engineer by the name Noam Shazeer.

I have crossed this bridge so many times and it feels so serene and calm at this place.
Only that this is not the movie set, but the location of one of the historical experiences of …
