If you have a question about this talk, please contact Timothy G. Griffin.

The ability to extract some level of ‘meaning’ from unstructured information has produced one of the fastest-growing sectors of the software industry. After an introduction to practical MBC systems this seminar will concentrate on two aspects: firstly, an examination of the security issues posed by pan-enterprise information access; and secondly, a discussion of applications of MBC to security areas such as video analysis and data fusion. What do you do when you don’t even know what the question is to search on?

Topics touched on will include information retrieval, access enablement in disperse systems, relevant security architectures, data fusion,speech recognition, and intelligent scene analysis

Following a Cambridge PhD in pattern recognition, Mike Lynch founded Autonomy in 1996 and rapidly established the company’s reputation as the world’s leading provider of meaning based technologies. In December 2005 he announced the completion of Autonomy’s $500 million acquisition of former competitor Verity, a deal which consolidated Autonomy’s position as number one in the market with a market capitalization of over $1.6 billion.

He has received many accolades, including the Electrical Engineer’s medal for outstanding achievement, the Confederation of British Industry’s Entrepreneur of the Year award and an OBE .
