Finding Useful Information Through the Internet

Information is now available in vast amounts from numerous diverse sources on every topic. But finding the right information and figuring what to do with it is still hard. There is a great need for better tools to locate relevant information and process it. I will discuss several new search and filtering systems we developed (Glimpse, GlimpseHTTP, Warmlist, Siff, Harvest) ranging from searching one disk to searching the whole Internet. I will also discuss how to combine global data with local processing to make Internet access much more productive.
