Research and Development:

Professional services application
Applied science and management consultants can benefit from KS products for a variety of strategic and analytic purposes. A list of example uses is given below. The following is a discussion of how KS technologies can help organizations utilize and exploit existing information assets; and render them into knowledge and communication assets for day-to-day visualization and collaboration.
  • Engineering and architectural project designs and specifications
  • Construction management
  • Environmental impact analysis studies and communications
  • Management consulting decisions, and communications
  • Financial consulting, audits and investment and cost analysis


Pattern profiling and mapping
PatternScape can be used in a variety of ways to search information and knowledge repositories that are useful for the management consultant and designer. Information repositories pertaining to each specialty, can be searched and mapped using the PatternScape information profiling technology. PS uses pattern profiling search methods to assist the professional to locate closely related information (variants). The inter-relating content of large information and management repositories can be leveraged from the intrinsic patterns across these diverse yet closely related intelligence and designs.

DocMap as a professional analytic search tool
Analyzing the content of an audit, report or specification using Document Mapping exposes the essence of meaning by clustering inter-related results and patterns. The function also allows for submitting findings to any indexed knowledge repository for analysis against other similar documents or reference authority; hence an audit can be mapped to other known audits (the audit index) to find similarity, differences or skews. An engineer, likewise can use the system to find related designs which would otherwise be impossible to find. And the mapping function works on very detailed granular content, which ultimately impacts the fidelity of findings.

Co-Existence (Co-x) search pad for information inter-relationships
Likewise, one may use co-existence mapping to find the inter-relationship of terms and distribution across the entire intelligence and knowledge asset. The Co-x result, a ClusterView of information, can be used for comparison of inter-relationships of common elements (alphanumeric terms). ClusterView contains vector distribution metrics for analysis of prevailing combinations of co-existing content across documents and data. Whether you are doing an audit, design or trying to locate support intelligence, PS is able to map to known topics and content within the information repositories which would otherwise require significant manual research. Co-x simply assists in identifying occurrence, co-existence, inter-related content and distribution frequencies.

Crawling, indexing and transforming information into searchable assets
CrawlScape, a browser based gathering and indexing tool, can be used as an automated crawl manager for the simplest to most complex network, intranet and information topologies. CS can manage the process of crawling and indexing distinct networks, systems and related intelligence and information assets. Whether the network contains http or ftp servers, network shares and folders, document types or Internet sites CS can crawl and index the needed targets systematically and automatically. The resulting search framework can treat each crawl-target as distinct or combined enterprise repositories.

An Intranet deployment utility and visualization portal
ScapeShape is an Intranet file sharing utility with a visualization framework for deploying browser-based web and Intranet sites. It is a multi-zone portal for:
  • Searching documents and files within its network
  • Communication discussion groups
  • File sharing and control under the extensive Intranet deployment utility
  • Co-existence search pad for common terms
  • RSS (news) feeds
  • Public announcements and advertising
  • Top activity zones
  • Paperless office user interface
  • Speak to text (voice notes) user interface

With these systems, it is possible to deploy unique Intranet Search sites for every department or specialty in a firm. This is made possible with the integration of an automated crawler, pattern profiling search, and ScapeShape Intranet deployment utility.

Webmasters can customize forum discussions, file sharing and search for particular use by each department and its users. For example, it is possible to deploy unique visualization instances for every department, project or specialty. This is all made possible with the integration of an automated crawler, pattern profiling search and ScapeShape.

Paper and voice conversion, and knowledge base inclusion
Conversion and collating features of SoftPaperScape and SpeakScape can be employed to transform physical assets (paper based reports, references, voice recorded reports, recorded observations, discussions and consultations) into searchable transcribed documents. These resulting assets are useful for building or adding to knowledge and information repositories. Both systems transform scanned documents or voice recordings into searchable assets for use in ScapeShape. Large documents are broken into searchable parts while long recordings are split into snippets for efficient review. All this is done automatically by SPKS and SPS.
