IBM Offers Free Email Search Tool

IBM (www.ibm.com) unveiled "smart" search software designed to help people find information buried in email. The software is powered by advanced algorithms that can interpret incomplete queries and find information such as phone numbers, people, meetings, presentations, documents, images, and more. Called IBM OmniFind Personal E-mail Search (IOPES), the semantic search tool is available at no charge on IBM alphaWorks (www.alphaworks.ibm.com/tech/emailsearch).

The email search tool is available as plug-ins for IBM Lotus Notes and Microsoft Outlook. Common search concepts, such as dates, times, and phone numbers, are built into the software; additional search parameters, such as meeting requests or specific locations, can be defined and used on-the-fly without any programming expertise. Such user-defined concepts can be shared between individuals and can be used to build a more personalized search system.

IOPES was created through a collaborative effort spanning IBM Research Labs in Almaden (Calif.), Haifa (Israel) and Delhi (India). The software uses the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA), an open source software framework that helps organizations build new analysis technologies. Originally developed by IBM, UIMA is now an open source project at the Apache Software Foundation (ASF). UIMA is already used extensively to enable text analysis, extraction, and concept-search capabilities in other parts of the IBM OmniFind enterprise search portfolio, including OmniFind Enterprise Edition, OmniFind Analytics Edition, and OmniFind Yahoo! Edition.
