Improvement of text retrieval systems - intelligent interfaces

Application of recent research in the fields of artificial
intelligence, expert systems and hypertext contexts and of
the technological development to information retrieval
systems

AUSTRIA and NORWAY have a tradition with respect to computerised systems retrieving documents in free text especially applied within legal areas. Results of former activities in NORWAY are the state-of-the-art system SIFT and major input for the development for STAIRS by AUSTRIA. Nevertheless the majority of information retrieval systems for mainframe computers on the international market date back to the early 1970's, so that modern aspects of user interface research and the facilities of local off-line databases are not taken into account by these systems. The objective of this project is to apply recent results from the research in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Expert Systems and hypertext concepts and of the technological development to information retrieval systems.
