EXHIBIT A

LICENSED SOFTWARE

A.1 Linguamatics’ I2E System is an interactive information extraction system. The I2E System automatically extracts information from texts according to user-defined queries. Documents are first preprocessed, using the tools supplied, into a form suitable for efficient querying. Queries are constructed in a Java interface and executed on-the-fly over sets of preprocessed documents. The results of a query can be manipulated and displayed in a variety of different formats via a web browser or other viewer.

A.2 The Licensed Software shall consist of:

A.2.1 An Ontology component, comprising executables for preprocessing ontologies. The ontology preprocessing tools translate ontologies in ANSI standard thesaurus format (and optionally other formats) into a suitable form for I2E querying.

A.2.2 An Indexing component, comprising executables for preprocessing texts, which take as input a collection of documents (in plain text, XML or another supported format), and the output of the ontology preprocessing. The output is a number of binary files in a user-defined directory.

A.2.3 A Querying component, comprising an executable for searching a document collection, taking as input a query expression and the binary files output by the preprocessing phase, and outputting the results (if any).

A.2.4 An Output component, which formats the results of a query suitable for viewing or further processing.

A.2.5 An Interface component, comprising a Java client interface in which queries can be constructed and submitted for processing, and various administrative and other functions can be performed.

A 2.6 A Server component, comprising a Java server which communicates with a Java client, accepts queries for processing and returns the results.

A.2.7 A collection of queries for tasks such as the extraction of entity-entity relationships.

A.2.8 Documentation, including a user manual.

A.2.10 Functionality to allow searching of documents using chemical structures, substructures and structural similarity incorporating third party technology licensed from ChemAxon.
