PLATFORMedia has developed a peer-to-peer distributed computation environment and search application that uses a corporate LAN's idle computing cycles to automatically-index document content, making it more easily accessible by users across the network. The company's Search by Concept application uses statistical inferencing and optimization techniques to systematically build 'mental maps' of each user's concepts of interest. Its scalable application architecture enables the members of a network to not only exchange files, but also manage the sharing of knowledge between nodes. The PLATFORMedia environment is tightly integrated with Microsoft applications such as Word and Excel and requires Windows 95/98/NT and the Java2 Runtime Environment 1.3 (JRE 1.3) or later. A free trial of the software is available for download.
