Abe Lederman

Abe has 35 years of experience in computer software engineering, the last 25 years focused exclusively on developing leading-edge  information retrieval products and solutions.  He began his career as a Software Developer at  Hewlett Packard and was then recruited in 1987  to become a founding member of Verity, a startup pioneer in the field of text retrieval where he developed  the user interface for their Topic product. In 1994, Abe left Verity to start Innovative Web Applications (IWA), a software consulting firm primarily serving Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). While consulting with LANL and later with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI), Abe came to realize the enormous potential for federated search technology to accelerate the diffusion of knowledge. He founded Deep Web Technologies in 2002.  As CEO and CTO, Abe has pushed DWT to set the gold standard for Federated Search, pushing the limits of what is possible.   Abe holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
