Cycorp's participation in the Darpa CPOF project winds down this
spring. We are constructing a Battle Monitor java application which
interfaces to Cyc. I have not met Ward Page, but others here work with
him routinely. I know those who you likely met at the PI meetings but
company policy prevents me from mentioning their names (without their
direct involvement).

I know the focus of CPOF was helping a battlespace commander deal with the
over abundance of information. What is the role of VisualInsights /
OculusInfo, what technologies do they contribute? I could get that
information from our CPOF project manager, but I believe the answer might
interest our readers.
