Abstract:

I have been fortunate to have bad the opportunity to be associated with the TIPSTER Text Program since its inception in 1989. Preliminary discussions among government researchers who were interested in establishing a major, new interagency text handling, processing, and exploitation program began in the Summer of that year and continued in earnest during the months that followed. Most of our frequent day-long planning meetings during the first year of our TIPSTER Program planning were held at DARPA headquarters in Arlington, VA and were chaired by the Program Manger of DARPAs Speech and Text RD efforts. There were clearly two different sets of experience and expertise present during these meetings. The DARPA Program Manager was a strong proponent and advocate of an Evaluation Driven Research Paradigm that be was following in the Speech component of his RD program. And even though this Program Manager bad spent only slightly more than one year at DARPA, be clearly understood bow DARPA established, funded and managed new RD Programs.
