Woz at DeepDyve

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has joined the advisory board of DeepDyve, a research company involved with technology for the deep web. "The Deep Web holds an almost limitless wealth of data, yet most of that information is collecting dust because nobody's come up with a way to mine the data in a way that's useful to researchers and consumers," said Wozniak. "The company has the potential to transform Deep Web search, and I'm excited to help bring about that transformation."

DeepDyve developed KeyPhrase technology that claims to allow a few words or a whole document to be entered as a query, then finds related articles from the deep web. Researches suggest the vast majority of information is contained in the deep web, as opposed to the surface web that is indexed by typical search engines.

"We're honored that Steve has chosen to work with DeepDyve, and we're excited about the strides that we'll make together," said William Park, CEO of DeepDyve.

Wozniak is currently involved in other business ventures as well, recently taking a position as chief scientist at the solid-state storage company Fusion-io. In comments to the New York Times, he downplayed the notion of joining Apple's board. "I have thought about that in recent years, but it's not on my mind at all right now," he said. "I think I have a better place at smaller companies looking at new ideas."
