The AIDA project is a program of research being carried out by Computer Power in Canberra, Australia, in collaboration with the Australian Parliament. Its primary objective is to develop practical methods for carrying out document content analysis with minimal human intervention. Following a very successful independent assessment of the techniques, the first commercial‐strength tool has now been developed. It links the different AIDA analyses (point form summary, keywords, and so on) with the original document to form a “complete” hyperdocument. The different techniques employed by AIDA to achieve its results are described.
