Inteliseek Releases Tools and Technologies to Aid Content Integration, Mining and Analysis


CINCINNATI, OH -- -- 08/27/2004 -- Intelliseek Inc. announces the availability of next-generation technologies and tools that solve fundamental challenges for government intelligence professionals, including the need to integrate content easily and quickly from multiple, disparate sources and in multiple languages, and the need to analyze and understand massive amounts of unstructured data for context, sentiment and perception management in the fields of homeland security and information sharing.

The first solution, Enterprise Discovery Suite v5.0, provides a holistic content discovery platform for the seamless, enterprise-wide integration of content from internal and external sources. Based on a federated search architecture, the suite allows geographically distributed users with different needs to receive automatic alerts and updates when specific content changes or new content is detected. Its key features include:

** Real-time content access and integration, including universal search interface, content filtering, analysis, summarization, relevance ranking,
classification and categorization, with built-in personalized alerts. It is one of the first applications to enable access to “deep Web” and “Invisible Web” sources.
** Unique, time-tested capabilities that preserve and leverage security models within disparate content systems and can securely support thousands of users in real time, using standards-based and custom authentication schemes.
** 100% Java compatibility, including cross-platform, multi-language capabilities and rich Web Services.
** Open, flexible, high-performance architecture that permits customization of core functions with easy-to-use interfaces and visual administration tools.
** Qualified for Solaris and Windows operating systems, with support for Sun One, Tomcat and BEA’s WebLogic application servers, Oracle and MS-SQL databases.

The U. S. Justice Department’s Regional Information Sharing System Network (RISSNET) is conducting an EDS pilot project that deploys Intelliseek’s enterprise search capabilities among several thousand users. RISSNET links law enforcement officials, first responders, criminal investigators, law enforcement officials, anti-terrorism experts and infrastructure professionals and agencies. Under the plan, single queries to RISSNET will search the data holdings of the interconnected FBI’s Law Enforcement Online (LEO) system, and the soon-to-be-interconnected Intelligence Community’s Open Source Information System (OSIS) and the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Anti-Drug Network-Unclassified (ADNETU).
“Intelliseek’s ability to enable single search across RISSNET, LEO, OSIS and ADNETU is one way to implement the oft-mentioned ’one-stop shopping’ for intelligence and information for counter-terrorism and the gamut of criminal investigations,” said Miles Matthews, RISSNET’s chief operating officer. “Such a capability is in accord with the recommendations of the National Criminal Intelligence Sharing Plan, approved by the Attorney General, FBI director, secretary of Homeland Security and president of the International Association of Chiefs of Police.”

The second set of technologies are found in Intelliseek’s BrandPulse Enterprise solution, which specializes in locating and analyzing unstructured data, including Internet-based conversations, discussions and opinions -- so-called consumer-generated media (CGM) -- to give it context, relevance and meaning. Its features include:

** Advanced text mining and natural language processing technologies that detect key issues, trends, phrases, sentiment and polarity.
** A desktop tool that enables slice-and-dice analysis, including a visual interface to identify concepts and their interconnections within the unstructured data.
** Ability to visually navigate social networks to understand the sources of the most active/influential online users and postings.
** The ability to create, customize or share graphs and reports with other eligible users.

“These new technologies and tools are built to deliver the right information to the right people at the right time, key challenges in an environment and era that demands real-time contextual knowledge and awareness,” said Sundar Kadayam, Intelliseek’s CTO.
Applications for these new technologies are varied in the government sector, depending on the need and types of information that can be accessed:

System-wide Access to Content: Deliver universal, secure, single-point access to disparate content sources for users in geographically distributed locations.

Open-Source Intelligence: Comprehensively monitor the wealth of information online and deliver alerts for relevant information from Internet web sites, news/media sources, deep/invisible Web databases, subscription sources, and CGM.

CGM Analytics: Tap into sophisticated perception measurement by locating, tracking and analyzing trends, issues, themes, sentiment and polarity in publicly available online message boards, discussion forums and blogs -- all CGM sources.

Advanced Text Mining: Mine large volumes of unstructured data from internal enterprise sources, such as field intelligence reports and intelligence product reports, for key themes, issues and topics.
