CS Student Wins World Google Fellowship

CS Student Wins World Google Fellowship 
Moran Feldman, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the Technion won the World Google European and American Doctoral Fellowships. It is the first time that Google decided to grant a fellowship to research students outside the United States and in Israel Feldman was chosen together with a student from the Hebrew University. The fellowship includes full tuition and additional grant for three years.

This fellowship program was inaugurate in 2009 and this year (2010) Google is awarding fellowship to 31 students from Europe, Canada, U.S.A., China and Israel. Feldman's research proposal deals with advertisement in web search engines and the importance of restricting the exposure of each web user to commercial banners, so that they don't loose their effectiveness. Naturally, Google, like other web search engines companies, which derive most of their income from advertising in their web sites, can substantially benefit from the results of such research and and naturally would be in interested in encouraging and supporting it.

Congratulations to Moran Feldman!
