PITTSBURGH (AP) - Carnegie Mellon University and web browsing firm Yahoo Inc. have announced a five-year, $10 million research partnership in which the Pittsburgh school will help develop more user friendly smartphone apps that can learn and be personalized from users’ habits.

The deal announced Wednesday is called Project InMind, and will include a Yahoo-sponsored fellowship program to support students interested in researching machine learning and related technologies.

Students will also be enlisted to help test mobile applications that are developed by the partnership.
