Scope and Contents

This collection contains oral histories related to software supporting the Technology Opportunities Analysis approach, which was developed at Georgia Tech by a team led by Dr. Alan L. Porter. The underlying software used in this approach was known as the Technology Opportunities Analysis Knowbot or System, originally coded by Dr. Porter's son Doug Porter. This technology was developed through a university-small business public-private partnership collaboration between Georgia Tech and Search Technology, Inc. One current iteration of the software, VantagePoint, is produced by Search Technology, Inc. Nils Newman worked with Dr. Porter as a graduate student and eventually went on to become President of Search Technology, Inc.
