New Delhi: Google is the undisputed king of search engines! It is said to have one of the fastest, most accurate search results as compared to other search engines that exist.

But, now a kid has challenged the authority of Google. Sixteen-year-old Anmol Tukrel, an Indian-origin Canadian citizen has designed a personalised search engine that claims to be as high as 47% more accurate than Google, and about 21% more accurate on an average.

Tukrel is just a standard 10 student and has been working on the project for just a couple of months. He has taken around 60 hours code and build a search engine, which is a part of the submission to the Google Science Fair. The Google competition is applicable for those between ages 13 and 18.

According to reports, when Tukrel was in India for a short internship in Bangalore, that's when he came to know about Google already having a personalized search engine, he planned to take it to a next level. Tukrel’s development kit included only a computer with at least 1GB of free storage space, a python-language development environment, a spreadsheet program and access to Google and New York Times.
