A thread over at WebmasterWorld named Could Google Be Having a Revolution?, discussed the possibility that Google might be using some sort of clustering technology to provide relevant results. Can they be? I would think on some level, behind the scenes they are. But will they go as far as Clusty or even Teoma in terms of refining results? I doubt it.
As search grows and more features like clustering, personalization, local and the like continue to spring up, do you think the simple Google box will go away? I don't think anyone does. This thread is interesting and worthwhile reading, IMO. What if Google did deploy a high level of clustering to its algorithm?
