In speech recognition, basic sounds are called phonemes. For surgery tasks, such as suturing, dissecting and joining tissue, the basic steps have been named 'surgemes.'

Ford expands PeopleSoft contract

Ford Motor has expanded its software contract with PeopleSoft, agreeing to purchase applications to help its information technology department keep track of projects and activities of more than 6,000 IT staff and contractors, the companies said Monday.

This new software licensing arrangement is a coup for a division of PeopleSoft that competes in the so-called professional-services automation market.
