This SBIR (NSF) phase-I project addresses the problem of search, especially
Internet based search, from a unique perspective of research agents
that mediate between, and on behalf of, the user and more traditional
information retrievel systems. The approach is innovative in a number of ways.
Direct commercial applications include information access and management on the
Internet, and in vertical markets; preparing briefs for case or patent law;
market analysis for traders and brokers; intelligence analysis;
primary and continuing education; university-based research; and
conducting and managing national research interests.
SHRUTI serves as the fast, parallel, and evidential inference engine in this project.
This project is funded as a subaward of an NSF, SBIR Phase I award to Cognitive Technologies Inc.
