Summary and Future Work

An IR model has been introduced that generalizes many commonly used IR mechanisms. A distributed architecture and indexing algorithm have been developed for this model. A prototype system has been developed to measure the performance characteristics of the algorithm, and the prototype has achieved a throughput of 500 queries per second. The model can support semantically complex content labels and queries.

A number of research efforts are actively being pursued on both KEYNET and closely related projects.
