SMILA (SeMantic Information Logistics Architecture) shall facilitate the quick deployment of applications for processing unstructured information. Is it true? Given 5 person days of man-power and the eclipse web site, is it possible to create a search application with SMILA? To prepare this talk, we have conducted the experiment and report on the findings.

The focus of the talk will be on the features and the design of the experimental application. We will demo the result and discuss what is achievable with a limited amount of resources. What are the features and what design decisions were made? Given more time, what would be different? The objective of the talk, is to explore the potential as well as the limitations of SMILA from a technical and economic perspective. Although not going into the coding details, we will conclude with some implications on further development directions and promising fields of application.
