Thanks to the Web, access to an increasing wealth and variety of information has become near instantaneous. To make informed decisions, however, users often need to access data from many different sources and integrate different types of information. Manually collecting data from scores of web sites and combining that data remains a daunting task. The ERC projects SeCo (Search Computing) and DIA- DEM (Domain-centric Intelligent Automated Data Extraction Methodology) address two aspects of this problem: SeCo supports complex search processes drawing on data from multiple domains with a user interface capable of refining and exploring the search results.
