More summarizing software

IBM is not the only organization actively developing software that can extract knowledge from text.

Technology Resource News has a little write-up about researchers at MIT and Cornell who are working on a system that can analyze a document and produce a coherent and relevant summary of the information contained therein.

Yeah, I know its an old article, but I just stumbled across it.

IBM is scanning my brain...

It seems as though I have some competition. Unfortunately, I am heavily outgunned.

Apparently, Pantera got its technology to steal song lyrics inside people's heads from IBM.

As reported on Slashdot, IBM is developing a system called Piquant, which can perform semantic analysis, extracting 'knowledge' from simple text.

Its nice to know I'm not the only one interested in developing this sort of technology.
