Dr. Jajodia receives MURI award from the Office of Naval Research

Dr. Jajodia received a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) award from the Office of Naval Research in the amount of $7.5M for the project "Generating Documents that are Consistent with a Knowledge Base."

There is a growing need for the US government and for US companies to understand the content of the documents within their own enterprises so that they can better protect the military secrets, intellectual property, personal information, financial information, and business plans contained therein. Such data within organizations is scattered within reports, presentations, spreadsheets, and more. The goal of this project is to develop the computational and mathematical foundations required to automatically understand technical documents and use an algebra of document manipulation operators to generate a collection of new documents that are consistent with the history.
