The young student designed the search engine as part of a high school project and also to submit to the Google Science Fair, pressexaminer.com reported.

Tukrel came across the idea of a personalised search engine during an internship stint in India at Bengaluru-based adtech firm IceCream Labs.

He planned to take it Google’s personalised search engine idea 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.

Tukrel’s search engine is currently restricted to one year’s news articles that appeared in The New York Times.

His development kit included only a computer, a python-language development environment, a spreadsheet programme and access to Google and New York Times.

To test the accuracy of his search engine, Tukrel limited the search query to this year’s articles from the New York Times.

Google has made it easier to find work-from-home jobs, almost a year after it began adding more job search features to its search engine.

“To help employers and recruitment platforms connect with candidates who need more flexibility, today we are announcing an improved job search experience that allows our customers to make remote work opportunities in the US more discoverable on their career sites.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has the highest percentage of employees satisfied with their jobs, according to a survey released by Gallup World Poll.

“This functionality supports users who search for jobs with terms like ‘work from home’ or ‘WFH’ and returns the relevant jobs that may be labelled differently as ‘remote’ or ‘telecommute’,” Jennifer Su, Cloud Product Manager, Google, wrote in a blog post late on Wednesday.

The company has also enhanced its job search capabilities in more than 100 languages.

Google already lets job searchers filter by commute time and type of transit, so it makes sense to add this work-from-home option, especially now that more employees are looking for this kind of flexibility. (IANS)
