CIA backs semantic search, wireless tech

The CIA has invested an undisclosed amount in semantic search technology and a technology that can turn a PC into a wireless network, InformationWeek reported.

In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s investment group, is backing NetBase, which develops semantic search technology, as well as Connectify, which develops VPN software.

In-Q-Tel’s role is to back commercial technologies that have the potential to aid intelligence and national security operations if developed further.
