Dr. Ed Fox, director of the Digital Library Research Lab (DLRL), will be working with Dr. Naren Ramakrishnan, associate department head in computer science and director of the Discovery Analytics Center, and Dr. Rex Hartson, professor emeritus in computer science, on human computer interaction and machine learning activities as part of the project entitled "Organizing Crawled Web Data for Brazilian Customers."

According to Dr. Fox, "Several members of the VTX staff will work in DLRL this spring, so we can teach about relevant technologies and demonstrate a series of prototypes, running in the Amazon cloud, of portions of the infrastructure they are developing. VTX plans to support mobile device based price comparison of online products found on Brazil's WWW."  The six month project will support approximately nine graduate students.
