Eluta.ca a Finalist in Red Herring Magazine’s Canada Top 50 Award

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) August 28, 2008

San Francisco-based Red Herring magazine has named Eluta.ca as a finalist in this year’s Canada Top 50 competition. The influential and widely-read financial and technology magazine has included the Toronto-based job search engine on its list of finalists, which recognizes the most innovative and promising new companies.

“It’s a great honor to receive this recognition from a magazine of Red Herring’s stature,” says Kim Peters, President & CEO of Eluta Inc. “Our search engine is changing the way Canadians look for work and we are thrilled Red Herring recognizes the significance of our industry-changing, disruptive technology.”

Unlike traditional job boards, Eluta.ca lets job-seekers search for new positions directly from employers’ websites. The search engine bypasses traditional job boards so job-seekers can find new positions as soon as they are posted. “Ten years ago, job boards began to replace newspapers as the main place where people looked to find new jobs,” says Tony Meehan, Founder and Chairman of Eluta Inc. “Today, job boards themselves are being overtaken by specialized vertical search engines, such as Eluta.ca.”

Launched in 2006, Eluta.ca is Canada’s largest vertical search engine specializing in the job search space. Besides its proprietary search technology, Eluta.ca includes valuable editorial information on thousands of employers drawn from the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition, managed by Eluta’s sister company. These reviews allow Eluta.ca users to evaluate opportunities they find on the job search engine. Each month, job-seekers perform over 5 million searches on Eluta.ca.

Beginning October 4, 2008, visitors to Eluta.ca will be able to read the competition organizers’ detailed Reasons for Selection, explaining why each of the winning employers was selected. “This is tremendously useful information for job-seekers,” says Richard Yerema, Managing Editor of the Canada’s Top 100 Employers project, “that will be available only on Eluta.ca.”

Previous startups on Red Herring’s Top 50 list in the USA include companies such as Google, Yahoo and VeriSign.

Take part in AgentLand’s Chatterbox Challenge and talk with the contestants in the world’s biggest on-line chatterbot contest. Agentland.com invites members of the public to participate in the election of the year’s best bot.

(PRWEB) April 20, 2002

The first universe dedicated to intelligent agents and chatterbots, Agentland.com is sponsoring the 2002 edition of the Chatterbox Challenge, a unique contest that directly involves members of the public in the choice of the winning chatterbot.

Chatterbots are talkative software programs that simulate conversation between man and machine. Enter any type of question or affirmation, and the chatterbot responds, just like a real person (but with its own logic!). Chatterbots attempt to create the illusion that a real exchange is taking place between two living, thinking entities. Their intelligence is artificial – but can be surprisingly realistic. No chatterbot is yet “intelligent” in the same way as a human. But more and more people are beginning to see the potential of chatterbots for providing natural and intuitive interaction between humans and machines.

Until 31 May, Internet users are invited to talk to the selected bots and give them a mark for the quality of their conversation. By voting, they are automatically entered in a prize draw to win one of 100 chatterbot CDs from Nautilus Magazine, that contain dozens of robots ready to chat!

Open to everyone, this international contest is the opportunity for everyone to have their say in the choice of the best chatterbot, by voting at:


To accompany the Chatterbox Challenge, Agentland.com has published a special report on chatterbots:


Agentland.com has assembled an international jury of experts made up of researchers and journalists specialized in intelligence artificial and new technologies, as well as two members of the public. Get to know the experts at:


Who are the men and women behind the bots? Read profiles of the botmasters, who explain their motivations, their vision of chatterbots in the future etc. at:
