ET SIG: Search Alone is Not Enough



  • Search Alone is Not Enough



    George Chitouras, VP Engineering, Inxight Software


    Presentation Overview

    Inxight, founded in 1997 (a Xerox PARC spin-off), is considered one of the world's leading providers of information discovery solutions. George will give us some insight into Inxight, including the recently launched “TimeWall,” an interactive visual information discovery solution that allows users to track people, places, relationships and event patterns over time.

    TimeWall displays data on an interactive, three-dimensional “wall” that allows analysts and other decision-makers to view huge data sets on one screen, at the same time giving them the ability to focus on specific areas of interest. This ability ensures that the context of the entire data set is not lost. When the user spots a cluster of activity, a simple click moves that period of time into focus, allowing the user to see the specifics of the events – what happened in what order – and includes links to the original information source. Users can also filter views to show only the data that is of specific interest to them.
