Today sees the launch of the new Centre for Intelligent Systems and their Applications (CISA) at the University of Edinburgh assisted by some of our technology. Working with Austin Tate of CISA Trevor Collins and John Domingue have set up an initial CISA Newsletter using KMi’s Planet Technology. The newsletter is initially being hosted at KMi during the development phase and will move to CISA later in the year.
This work occurs within the context of the Advanced Knowledge Technologies Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration (AKT). Within the AKT project a number of technologies are being developed to automatically categorise the events and important entities within incoming stories. This acquired knowledge is then used to provide intelligent services, such as personalization and filtering to Planet readers. This application of intelligent news services is an example of the kind of advanced collaboration and knowledge sharing tools being explored by KMi and CISA through the AKT IRC.
