Businesses today have made substantial investment in information technologies enabling efficient communication between their partners, employees and customers. But 80 percent of business documents are created and stored in unstructured formats like paper, fax, processing documents, PDF, HTML, email, etc. that are not easily accessible.

At this Pub Talk, Vijay Rangarajan will discuss how Rebus Technology offers a unique way of searching and retrieving any type of documents by using its patented full-text Fuzzy search technology. Fuzzy search technology is especially useful when searching paper and fax-based documents that may contain misspelled or run-together words resulting from the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) process. With the proliferation of digital copiers in business environments, which can be used as document filing and distribution systems, it becomes all the more important for applications to have Fuzzy search capabilities.


Vijay Rangarajan is the chief architect of Rebus technology and has been involved in image processing and pattern recognition technologies since 1983. He has designed and managed the development of several successful products in the areas of scanning, OCR, and document management technologies since 1984. As a project manager at Caere Corporation, he helped design and manage the industry's most successful OCR product, OmniPage from conceptualization through three releases for both PC and Macintosh platforms. As a software design engineer at DEST Corporation, Mr. Rangarajan helped design the software for the first successful desktop scanner in 1985. He is a recipient of PC Magazine's Technical Excellence award for his contribution in the development of OmniPage product. He also holds two patents in the areas of Fuzzy search and Automatic Page registration which have been incorporated in the Recollect product line.


Founded in 1990, Rebus Technology Inc. develops and licenses document imaging and knowledge management products that enable individuals and organizations to easily search and retrieve information stored in paper-based and electronic documents. Rebus is in the process of establishing strategic alliances with digital copier manufacturers and offering a solution to make digital copiers a centralized document filing and distribution system.
