Large volumes of information can be searched and reduced to concentrated content nuggets with the CoBrain Knowledge Processor from Invention Machine Corp., Boston. Essentially a search engine with storage capabilities, the system uses the company's proprietary semantic processing technology to read, understand, and extract fundamental content at about one megabyte per minute, by evaluating word groupings for cause/effect relationships while preserving context. Results are delivered with hyperlinks to the source documents, in a problem/solution format as two-to three-sentence abstracts, collapsing cycle time on information gathering projects. The CoBrain Knowledge Processor is designed to operate 24/7 on any electronic database or text source (periodicals, etc.), including those on the company intranet, or the Internet itself.
