What is procspace?
Procspace is a collaborative outliner software enhanced with data-mining and agent technology. It allows a work group to share text documents
and ideas on the Web in collaboration with a series of agents that use statistical semantic analysis to create links between documents and search for similar texts on the Web. It
can (among other things) be used as an ontology driven clustering engine for re-ranking Google results.
Procspace has been designed with a team of researchers in the humanities in mind, but it can be used by anybody or any group who works with a lot of text documents. Have a look at a
screenshot or check out the beta-version.
Where does it come from?
Procspace is the practical part of my Ph.D. dissertation in information and communication science
at the Département Hypermédias at
Paris 8 University. It will hopefully become an open source project soon.
