The existing search engine interaction paradigm of typing in keywords and getting an enormous list of links is not suited for a lot of information seeking tasks. We see synthesis or summarization of information to satisfy users’ information needs as an important step on the way to next generation information access systems. The idea is to explore the alternative geometrical models of meaning  based on the theory of Quantum Mechanics and Hilbert Spaces as a unifying framework for integrating semantic metadata into retrieval and summarization.
