Not sure if such posts are allowed if not let me know or downvote me into oblivion :) I have been thinking about this for a while and I wanted a community to vote on this: Idea: Implement a distributed search engine leveraging some of the blockchain concepts
Values: * Global, Neutral, Transparent Search Engine * Everyone is allowed access to the Search Engine + API for everyone to use. * Privacy is the default no tracking for end users unless they want to be tracked (for them to get personalized search results) * Use global computing power to run a super scalable learning algorithm * Anti-manipulation built in to prevent nodes from manipulating or skewing search results. * Entire web is included Clearnet and Darknet
At a high level (there are enough details to publish a paper but i will make it high level) * user operated nodes which run discovery, crawling, indexing, learning,… * website owners, server owners, webmasters are encouraged to run their own nodes which will index and learn their content, provide search function for their own sites, plus help get their content discovered. * API constructs allow you to both run search queries and FEED your structured data learning data to the network. * Serving Ads (or we can call it sponsored content, or random content) is allowed, if you run a node you are allowed to serve ads, proportional to your computing power that has been used to discover, crawl, index the web) * User facing Search site that is distributed and runs on the various nodes * When user accesses DS.com DNS resolves to nearest node. Nearest node serves queries either from its local index, or tries to find ranking from nearest nodes, etc.
Ask questions, Poke holes, upvote or downvote into oblivion .. and anyone wants to work with me on this?
