Beta version of Aladdin launched

Baidu has launched a beta version of its "Aladdin"
search platform at and, according to Sina and DoNews
reports. Users need to register a new account to
join the open platform. Aladdin partners do not
receive payment or pay a service fee, said the
Sina report.

Aladdin is an enhanced search platform that will
grab data from currently inaccessible "deep web"
sites, Baidu CEO Robin Li said at a ceremony last
December. Company CTO Yinan Li said that more
than half of the company's 2,000 core engineers
were working on the platform, originally slated for
release in January 2009.
