16 year old Indian Anmol Tukrel claims his search engine is 47% more accurate than Google

A Sixteen year old Indian-origin Canadian citizen boy Anmol Tukrel has designed a personalized search engine which he claims to be as high as 47% more accurate than Google and about 21% more accurate on an average.

Anmol has just completed his tenth grade. Anmol says he took a couple of months to design it and about 60 hours to code the engine.

Anmol Tukrel has designed the search engine as part of a his high school project and also to submit to the Google Science Fair a global online competition that is open to students between 13 to 18 years of age.

Anmol Tukrel said in interview, “I thought I would do something in the personalized search space. It was the most genius thing ever. But when I realized Google already does it, I tried taking it to the next level.”

Tukrel said that unlike most search engines that use a person’s location or browsing history to throw relevant results, his engine tries to show the most relevant content by mapping it to a user’s personality.

His development kit included a computer with at least 1 GB of free storage space, a python-language development environment, a spreadsheet program and access to Google and New York Times. Tukrel has limited the search query to only this year’s articles from the New York Times.
