SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Loqu8 today at Web 2.0 Summit will highlight an instant search tool that delivers web search, news and images in both desktop applications and online websites. Instead of asking users to type words into a search engine, Prelude™ brings information to the user through a pop-up window.
“Apple popularized graphical user interfaces in 1984,” described Dr. Tim Uy, President and CEO of Loqu8. “Today Loqu8 Prelude is making traditional command line search obsolete. No more typing or copy-and-paste keystroke maneuvers. By harnessing the power of Microsoft Bing™, Microsoft’s new decision engine, plus Wikipedia, and other key Microsoft platform technologies including Windows 7, Visual Studio 2008 and Windows Server 2008, Prelude delivers information instantly, in context and at the right time.”
The Power of Augmented Learning
Loqu8’s self-discovery learning model is the culmination of years of research at Stanford University in cognitive science and information processing. Touch the screen or point with a mouse to display key information: web search, language translation, images and speech. Powered by Loqu8’s iNtution™ engine, Prelude empowers users with the information to learn quickly, work efficiently and make timely decisions. Suddenly every user becomes a learner. That’s the power of Loqu8’s augmented learning technology.
“Through the Microsoft BizSpark program, Loqu8 has created a powerful instant search tool based on key Microsoft technologies," said Beti Cung, business development manager, Emerging Business Development Group at Microsoft. “We are thrilled to support a game-changing startup that advances global learning.”
Loqu8 will be demonstrating Prelude at the Web 2.0 Summit in the Microsoft Lounge.
