ChaCha Inc., the human-assisted Internet search engine based in Carmel, this afternoon is expected to announce a research-and-development alliance with Indiana University.

ChaCha founder Scott Jones will join IU Vice President for Information Technology Brad Wheeler for a news conference at IUPUI.

Founded last year, ChaCha quickly raised $6 million from investors, including Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos, Compaq Computer founding CEO Rod Canion, and Jack Gill, who co-founded Palo Alto, Calif. venture capital firm Vanguard Ventures.

Local investors include Simon Equity Partners, an affiliate of Simon Property Group and Gazelle TechVentures.
