Bangladesh launches first search engine, pipilika.com

Monday 15 April 2013 | 09:34 CET | News

Bangladesh's first search engine, http://www.pipilika.com, was set to debut on the eve of Pahela Baishakh (the first day of Bangla year) on 13 April, the Daily Star reported online. At least eleven researchers and developers at the computer science and engineering department of Shahjalal University of Science and Technology in Sylhet have launched a beta version in collaboration with GPIT Ltd.

Writer, educationist and professor at the computer science and engineering department, Muhammed Zafar Iqbal, played a key role as the project director of Pipilika, and assistant professor Ruhul Amin Sajib led the team.

In the beta version, the search engine uses Bangla as its default language and the search can be filtered in time periods, such as the last 24 hours, week or month. Avro (Bangla font), which uses an English keyboard to type Bangla phonetically, is the default input system. The search engine explains and uses reports from the main Bangla and English newspapers of the country, Bangla blogs, Bangla wikipedia, and government information.

There is a Bangla dictionary which automatically searches for correct words if a user types in the wrong word. It tells the user that the search was carried out with the correct word and provides an option to do another search with the incorrect word. A few categorical searches are also available on the left of the search page.
