Indy (software)

Indy is a music discovery tool for computers with an Internet connection. It uses collaborative filtering to automatically download music the user is likely to enjoy listening to. Indy is similar to iRATE radio, but does not include a built-in file manager. Indy automatically downloads music from public websites and continuously plays new titles. The user can rate the titles during or after playback. These ratings are then matched against the tastes of other listeners, and newly downloaded titles are meant to be more likely to be enjoyable to the listener.

Every track can be given a rating from 1 to 5 stars. If the song is still playing when the user assigns the score, a rating lower than 3 stars skips to the next title. Indy's user interface is highly simplified. The makers of the program recommend to only use Indy to discover music, and to utilize other applications to organize and repeatedly listen to it.

Indy (gene)

Indy, short for I'm not dead yet, is a gene of the model organism, the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. Mutant versions of this gene have doubled the average life span of fruit flies in at least one set of experiments, but this result has been subject to controversy. Its name originates from a well-known comic line in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

In a Yale University School of Medicine study by lead author and Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Gerald Shulman, the George R. Cowgill Professor of Physiological Chemistry, Medicine, and Cellular and Molecular Biology, reduced expression of this gene in Drosophila melanogaster flies and C. elegans worms modeled the effects on obesity and diabetes of caloric reduction in primates such as humans.
