Remember the Stanford Artificial Intelligence class that made quite a few waves on the Internet last year when the professor decided to let virtually anyone who was interested participate online? Sebastian Thrun, who specializes in robotics and machine learning, taught that class to close to 160,000 students. Now, however, he has decided to leave Stanford and start Udacity, a...

There's been a lot of talk in the last 24 hours about how Google may be favoring its own social network Google+ with yesterday's "Search plus Your World" update. Getting lost in this heated discussion is the simple question of whether this update is actually improving the search experience on Google. Google, in its announcement yesterday, said that it is...
