  • The Inventorum system uses the Polish information retrieval system called NEKST (An adaptive system to support problem-solving on the basis of document collections in the Internet). Thanks to the NEKST system an information volume of the Inventorum database is increased. The NEKST system supports the collection process of the documents about companies, conferences, innovations, publications, etc. from the Polish Internet. After that, these all documents are processed by the Inventorum processes. In this way, we can automatize the acquisition and presentation process of the new information for the Inventorum users.nekst - semantic search engine
