Copyfinder, for example, takes an electronic document and returns the URLs pointing to it, to different versions of the document, and to related documents. Trailmeme is a new publishing tool that allows readers to navigate stories in both Web-like and book-like ways. And the Arabic Morphological Analyzer accepts modern standard Arabic words and returns morphological analysis and English notation. As of Thursday, 15 research projects were posted at Open Xerox, and the company has another 70 projects in the pipeline, said Victor Ciriza, lab manager at the Xerox Research Centre Europe."
