»The Walhello search engine is one of the world's ten largest search engines with a huge index of 2,400,000,000 indexed web pages.The relevancy of search results is based on state of the art mathematical algorithms and artificial intelligence.« Source

»Based on research we concluded that information about a certain topic is clustered on adjacent Web pages. Research also showed that these clusters are unique for each search query. Walhello developed technology that can identify dynamically clusters and subsequently the size and relevance of a cluster for each search query performed. The ranking of a web site is based (in addition to characteristics of the page itself) on the distance of the page to clusters and the relevance of these clusters. Walhello is researching computational challenges to improve the ranking of web pages based on this clustering technology.« Source
