  • 8:15-8:30 PM The Expoz™ tool is focused on knowledge capture and exposing relationships across a wide variety of information sources such as unstructured, semi-structured and structured information systems. It takes a clustering-based approach for facilitating the discovery of candidate mapping terms & reusable software patterns. The clusters also allow a context-oriented search across ontologies thus providing a quick "big picture" of the system. Mala Mehrotra will present these various modules in the tool.
  • 8:30-9:00 PM Informal individual demos and networking.
