ICANN explores the possibility of full-fledged use of domain names in all 22 official languages in India

July 9th, 2010 No comments

The historic decision of ICANN (The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to support non-Latin characters is a giant leap towards the internationalization of the Internet.

top_level_domainsDomain Name System came into place to provide meaningful, easy to type and easy to remember domain names to a website. Support for regional languages is another step in the right direction to improve global Internet accessibility.

Arabic has now become the first non-Latin script to be used followed by Chinese.
The days are not so far, you will be typing the domain names in your local language.

"This is the biggest change technically to the Internet since it was invented 40 years ago," : Peter Dengate Thrush, Chairman of the ICANN

The ICANN has put in place a “fast track” system, under which certain requirements will have to be fulfilled by individual countries before making their language systems operational.

C-DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing), a scientific society (famous for its PARAM supercomputers) is assigned the task of putting up guidelines and policies for Top-Level Domains (TLDs) in local languages of India.

The Devanagari script-based languages (Marathi, Hindi, Konkani, Sanskrit and Nepali), Gujarati, Oriya, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Assamese and Bangla will be included in the new language dispensation in phases. It will eventually cover all 22 official languages, including those using Perso-Arabic scripts such as Urdu, Sindhi and Kashmiri.

Most languages will have the equivalent of ‘.Bharat’ as the top level domain name, but it will be ‘.India’ in the case of Tamil, ‘.Bharatam’ in the case of certain languages like Sanskrit and Malayalam and ‘.Hindostan’ in the case of Urdu, if the proposal goes through.

The domain names are in Unicode, a universal encoding system which accommodates the entire range of characters that are used in different languages. Historically domain names could only consist of characters from “a,b,c…,z”; “0,1,2,…,9” and “-“.

Wolfram Alpha : The Computational Search Engine

July 2nd, 2010 No comments

Netizens from early days were trying to index the data available on the Internet. Mainstream search engines succeeds in fetching results that contain your search string. Then came the era of enhancing web searches by promoting multi search engines like

Another service worth mentioning is Yippy which yields results back in clustered sets.

But if you need quantitative data, Wolfram Alpha all the way. It computes your query to provide easily comprehensible results.

Wolfram|Alpha’s long-term goal is to make all systematic knowledge immediately computable and accessible to everyone in real-time. It is useful when we need facts apart from textual web

Elementary Mathematics to Famous Math Problems !


Wolfram Alpha uses "natural language processing algorithms" to find the answers to users’ questions, allowing users to phrase queries as if they were asking a question in a conversation
”Number of people in India” interpreted as India Population yields the result, Long-term population history and Demographics

Climate change in Asia interpreted as Global climate studies Asia




More examples illustrated here

"Wolfram Alpha is built on Wolfram’s earlier flagship product, Mathematica, a complete functional-programming package which encompasses computer algebra, symbolic and numerical computation, visualization, and statistics capabilities. With Mathematica running in the background, it is suited to answer mathematical questions."
