Demonstration of Guided Information Access: Interactive Semantics

  • Apr 6, 2010 · 6:00 PM
  • Tri City Wellness center

Presentation and demonstrations by Jerzy Lewak, cofounder & CTO of Speedtrack Inc, CEO and President of Nisus Software Inc. Two applications of this Dynamic Interactive Semantic Search and information discovery tool will be demonstrated. The discovery domains will be: - An unstructured database of newspaper articles - A structured database of crime incidents This approach and display of Guided Information access (GIA), is made possible only by leveraging the novel approach underlying the TIE (Technology for Information Engineering) system. Information is exhibited through associations of, or links between the data elements. Utilizing this unique approach, TIE is thus able to focus on a dynamic display of associations whilst guiding a user through information discovery. Faceted Navigation uses the principal starting idea of the TIE system. Faceted Navigation is currently actively discussed and in its elementary incarnation used on hundreds of web sites. Its severe limitations prevent its general application to all kinds and sizes of data. The technology behind the TIE system enables it to overcome all the major limitations of Faceted Navigation, leveraging a mechanism which focuses on information storage, its display and its retrieval. GIA is applicable to any kind of data, local or distributed; structured, unstructured or mixed and has been demonstrated with databases of documents, publications, emails, medical data, crime data, insurance data and weblogs. More about Jerzy Lewak, PhD: Inventor and Co-Founder of Speedtrack and more, Serial entrepreneur and Professor Emeritus Electrical Engineering UCSD. Jerzy oversees all technical aspects of SpeedTrack, leading the activities in product development, R&D and Intellectual Property. He is the principal inventor of the Guided Information Access Platform (GIA). Jerzy has developed over a dozen consumer software products including one of the leading word processing applications for the MAC, NISUS WRITER, currently used in 80 countries. He has been President and founder of Nisus Software for 24 years, developing software products for the Mac and Windows operating systems. Dr. Lewak is a professor emeritus from the University of California at San Diego where he taught Electrical and Computer Engineering for 25 years. Dr. Lewak received his BS and Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Manchester, England, and holds multiple software patents.

    Examples of GIA's relevance semantic web: An enabling technology "_ to satisfy the requests of people and machines_" (see Wikipedia ); provides meaning in the data by displaying associations, making finding easy; GIA selector vocabularies can be the RDF schema; GIA enables a universal data query language.

    It was good to meet with others interested in learning about Semantic Web although not much of the meeting content was about semantic technologies. The GIA presentation was long but very helpful to me.

    Very interesting presenter and technology. I'm missing the 'Web' part of it though. While the technology presented certainly qualified as 'semantic' it doesn't seem to be connected in any way to the standards that define the 'semantic web'.
