SINGAPORE: If you have an idea for the next YouTube or Facebook, you could win US$100,000.
That's the top prize in "The Star Challenge" competition to select winning ideas on how to develop technologies for a search engine that is smart enough to find content.
The task is to create technologies to help users navigate and identify material such as text, audio and video containing any word, even if that word has not been tagged by creators or users.
The worldwide competition is being run by A*STAR as part of the official opening of the Fusionopolis later this year.
The top five teams with the best search results will be identified and brought to Singapore for the finals in October.
