The Lemur Project
The Lemur Project's software development philosophy emphasizes state-of-the-art accuracy, flexibility, and efficiency. For example, the Indri search engine provides accurate search for large text collections 'out of the box', and data is stored in an accessible manner to support development of new retrieval strategies. Software from the Lemur Project is distributed under open-source licenses that provide flexibility to scientists and software developers.
The Lemur Project was begun by the Center for Intelligent Information Retrieval (CIIR) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the Language Technologies Institute (LTI) at Carnegie Mellon University. For more information about the Lemur Project, see the About page.
