Discovery Machine Introduces Knowledge Capture Software And Services

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Feb. 7, 2006— Discovery Machine, Inc., today introduced an expanded portfolio of knowledge capture software and services for enterprise, industry and government users. Discovery Machine 4.0 enables affordable knowledge engineering without requiring large software development cycles or significant amounts of training.

In highly competitive and rapidly changing markets, the ability to quickly capture knowledge allows companies to automate problem solving, amplify research, and enhance real-time decision making. This can translate into 100-fold increases in productivity.

"With today's introduction of Version 4, we are opening up this magnitude of productivity gain to the forward-thinkers in business and industry," said DMI's Chief Technology Officer, Todd W. Griffith. "Discovery Machine 4.0 is about breaking down barriers to knowledge capture. In the past, artificial intelligence and knowledge-capture technologies have been too complex, cumbersome and expensive to be practical for business and industry.

"Discovery Machine allows the experts themselves to do the capture and to build their own executable models. Version 4.0 is intuitive and seamless, and it has the right combination of improvements and enhancements to make everything happen easily. Once a company is able to make huge productivity gains, they often experience waves of innovation. Innovation is the critical edge, especially when your business is global."

The Discovery Machine's breakthrough software has been proven in the defense, aerospace, and biomedical research arenas, and the company has partnered with the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), Lockheed Martin Advanced Technology Laboratories, Northrop Grumman Newport News, BMH Associates Inc. and Global InfoTek Inc.

"These are some of the world's most demanding partners," Griffith observed. "Business and industry can benefit from the rigorous development and validation they have required. We believe the Discovery Machine can make an immediate and significant impact in the world financial, biomedical and pharmaceutical sectors, as well as homeland security and energy.

"Once a company explains their mission-critical knowledge engineering needs, we can easily demonstrate how the Discovery Machine can transform those. It's that immediate. We have yet to find a limit to its application."

The 4.0 release, available at, expands Discovery Machine's extremely powerful language with new features for representing and simulating expertise in a natural way. Additional functions make it easier to refine and deploy simulations. A major addition is full-scale support to help experts adapt their models over time.

Discovery Machine 4.0 works on Microsoft and Linux systems and soon will be available for Macintosh systems. A plug-in is available for BIOSPICE and is under construction for Eclipse.
