With Yandex at CERN, Search and Science Collide - Businessweek
"A few months ago he asked for help from Yandex (YNDX), the dominant Web search company in his native Russia, and on April  10 the two organizations unveiled the result of their collaboration. The custom-built search engine lets more than 700 physicists working on Golutvin’s experiment instantly sift through about one-twentieth of the data they produce, and tailor searches by 600 criteria, such as time of collision. The Yandex software also produces QR codes to embed into scientific papers, so that other scientists can easily access the underlying data with their smartphones. Overall, the technology “can shorten the chain from idea to realization” of an experiment, says Golutvin." - Anton Volnuhin from Bookmarklet
