By Mr. Vijay Rangarajan, Founder, President & Chief Executive

Open to the Public. No fee. 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
The Pub Talk begins at 6:00 p.m.
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.
