Blendle starts a research project with Maarten de Rijke and Isaac Sijaranamual, researchers at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). The project will focus on improving the search engine of Blendle. The UvA brings state-of-the-art research on semantic search to Blendle, while Blendle offers the UvA an experimentation platform, which is often lacking in academic research.
