VP at Yahoo on personalized search

David Mandelbrot, Yahoo’s vice president of search content, recently had this to say about long-term plans for Yahoo Search:
    Down the road we are focused on personalized search. We have a team of engineers working on discovering user intentions when they do a search. We’re looking at folders and clustering and other personalization techniques. Relevancy and freshness are huge priorities for us and our technology does a much better job in those areas as well as in comprehensiveness.
