  Wide area information server - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The WAIS protocol and servers were primarily evangelized by Thinking Machines Corporation of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
One of the developers of WAIS was Brewster Kahle, who left Thinking Machines to found WAIS Inc in Menlo Park, California with Bruce Gilliat.
WAIS was often used as a full text search engine for individual Internet Gopher servers.

 Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale or WAIS is a general test of intelligence (IQ), published in February 1955 as a revision of the Wechsler-Bellevue test (1939), standardised for use with adults over the age of 16.
However, this is usually done with a separate version of the WAIS, known as the WAIS-R NI (Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-Revised as a Neuropsychological Instrument).
As the WAIS is developed for the average, non-injured individual, separate norms were developed for appropriate comparison among similar functioning individuals.

 Wais to leave for NYU in March - The Stanford Daily Online
Wais was initially offered the NYU position on Dec. 20, and he finally reached an agreement with the school last Thursday.
Wais gave four reasons for his decision to accept the NYU post: the academic caliber of the school, NYU’s “tremendous growth” in the past 10 years, its New York City location and the school’s relative closeness to his and his wife Sue’s families (Wais is originally from Baltimore, and Sue is from New Haven, Conn.).
Wais, who worked at six different schools before coming to Stanford, said that one of the many things he will miss about the Farm is the unique character of Stanford students.

 WAIS
The databases may be organized in different ways, using various database systems, but the user is not required to learn the query languages of the different databases.
The WAIS client uses natural language queries to find relevant documents and the result of a query is a set of documents which contain the words of the query.
WAIS databases are available on topics ranging from Agriculture to Social Science.

 Chapter 12 -- Using WAIS with CGI
WAIS is strongest in dealing with large amounts of text, which was the goal in its design.
The advantage that a WAIS database has over an old-fashioned card catalog is that even though the card catalog can contain only summary information about the documents it knows about, WAIS provides a search method that includes the contents of the documents as well as their summary information.
Because a WAIS database is really just an index of documents, creating the database is a matter of going through each document and creating tables of words from the documents, titles, document locations, and other data that the search program can reference later on.

 How to Search a WAIS Database
The WAIS search engine receives a user's question, searches its database for documents most relevant to the question, and returns a relevance-ranked list of documents back to the user.
In this example, the WAIS Server would search for documents containing the words 'portable' and 'computers'; the other words, 'tell', 'me', and 'about', are called "stop words" -- they are so common that they occur in almost every document, so they are not used for searching a document.
For this parse format, the WAIS parser detects the "to" and "cc" fields, the "from" and "sender" fields, the "subject" field, and the "date" field.

WAIS provides advanced server-side search and retrieval capabilities, including support for binary datatypes and very fast searches of the entire contents of large textual databases.
A WAIS gateway, in this context, is a server that accepts a query from a Web client via HTTP, issues a query to a WAIS database on behalf of the client, post-processes the results of querying the WAIS database, and returns the information to the Web client (again via HTTP).
You can set up your WAIS database in such a way that the text descriptions are searched, but appropriate images are given to the user as a result of successful search hits in the text descriptions.

Barnard is remembered for his frequent discovery of comets and nebulae, for the novel application of photography to astronomy on a regular basis, and for his discoveries of the fifth moon of Jupiter and a fast moving star now called Barnard's Runaway Star.
Edward Emerson Barnard was a pioneer in celestial photography, taking a remarkable series of photographs of the Milky Way, at a time when the photographic procedure required long exposures and extreme patience.
His observations led him to conclude that many starless spaces in the Milky Way are dark nebulae, consisting of clouds of dustlike particles.

 WAIS Divide Ice Core Project
WAIS Divide is a United States deep ice coring project in West Antarctica funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and is the second component to the larger WAISCORES initiative.
The purpose of the WAIS Divide project is to collect a deep ice core from the flow divide in central West Antarctica in order to develop a unique series of interrelated climate, ice dynamics, and biologic records focused on understanding interactions among global earth systems.
As such, the WAIS Divide ice core will enable detailed comparison of environmental conditions between the northern and southern hemispheres, and the study of greenhouse gas concentrations in the paleo-atmosphere, with a greater level of detail than previously possible.

 LEARN THE NET: Glossary: WAIS
An acronym for Wide Area Information Servers, WAIS is a network information retrieval service that you can use to search for keywords or phrases in specially indexed files.
Unlike Gopher, which searches files by their titles, WAIS engines search the full text of files and return a list of documents that contain the keyword you are searching for.
Although the name "wide area" implies the use of large networks such as the Internet, WAIS is frequently used to index and retrieve documents on only one machine or on a LAN (local area network).
