Apparently there used to be this little known search engine called Blekko. Yesterday it looks like they were acquired by IBM to be incorporated somehow with their Watson AI.

Ever since Watson appeared on Jeopardy a few years ago I've been waiting for someone to use it to improve internet searching. Maybe that's what IBM was waiting for too but no one came knocking on their door so have they now taken the matter into their own hands? One can only hope.
