Towards the Next Generation of Enterprise Search Technology
A.Z. Broder and A.C. Ciccolo, 2004 , (Paper URL)
Sunday, October 2, 2005

This is the lead off paper for the IBM journal's special issue on their Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA). As such, it's pretty bland. UIMA hopes to bring Natural Language Processing (NLP) and other smarts to search so that web pages are no longer seen as a big bag of words. IBM is big on this and their Alphaworks site is even releasing Java source code to help. I think that adding semantics to the web is vital and that the tools from artificial intelligence are going to be necessary to make it happen. UIMA is a step in the right direction. If you don't believe me, see what Jon Udell had to say!
