Last week saw the midterm review for the EPSRC funded Advanced Knowledge Technologies (AKT) project at the University of Southampton. Overall the review went extremely well. In his summing up the review, panel chair Professor James Hendler said �if I could give you a grade it would be an �A�� and pointed out that many of the outcomes would not have been possible without this type of research collaboration project. During the 2 days of presentations and demonstrations KMI had a significant presence, the highlights being a presentation by Professor Enrico Motta on Knowledge and Semantic Web Services followed by a demo of our Semantic Web Services platform �The Internet Reasoning Service� (IRS) by Dr. John Domingue; a presentation on how a number of novel technologies have been integrated to support internet-mediated meetings with groups based at different locations by Dr. Simon Buckingham Shum; and a demo of KMi�s web sense-making system Magpie by Dr. John Domingue. Other KMI researchers involved in AKT or associated projects are Marc Eisenstadt, Jiri Komzak, Liliana Cabral, Martin Dzbor, Vanessa Lopez, Jianhan Zhu and Maria Vargas-Vera.
