Here’s our second interview with Suranga Chandratillake, the Cambridge-trained computer scientist and co-founder of Blinkx, the San Francisco-based start-up which is doing pioneering work in video search.
Suranga speaks about the different set of skills need to solve the search on the Web. He says the technology is not purely numbers – not "black and white" – but "fuzzy" — more of an art than science, and he’s assembled a staff and the technology to make this all work, he tells us.
The company has raised $10 million from individuals, no venture capital. Nice to have friends like that.
If you didn’t see our first interview with Suranga, here it is.
