we re looking for new ideas
We’re Looking for New Ideas
  • Phrase Enhanced Search (PES) - Extracted high quality phrase information from files using University of Arizona Noun Phrase Extraction software
    • High quality phrases are placed in a searchable database.
    • User searches using simple concepts - “aircraft”, “tank”, “cargo”.
    • Phrases are returned that match these simple concepts.
    • User can then select from these returns phrases that match the information they are looking for.
    • These selected phrases are passed to a full featured search engine such as AltaVista for actual returns.
where to go from here
Where to go from here?
  • We need to continue to evolve
  • We need new ideas on information discovery and management
  • We’ll never catch the Internet wave but we hope to always follow it
