Microsoft’s ‘Bing’ search engine based on Kumo project

Microsoft’s new search engine announced and demo’d at the All Things D conference this morning is not a straight re-naming of Live Search, but is the new name for their new search engine based on a project previously named as ‘Kumo’.

What sounds interesting is it’s ability to show results based on the context of the search terms. Doesn’t this sound familiar? That’s right, this was the promise of Cuil? That hasn’t picked up any noticeable following at this point, so have to see what happens with this offering from Microsoft as they go down this same path.
