As this is a conference on mathematical tools for defense, I would like to dedicate this talk to the memory of Louis Auslander, who through his insights and visionary leadership, brought powerful new mathematics into DARPA, he has provided the main impetus to the development and insertion of wavelet based processing in defense. My goal here is to describe the evolution of a stream of ideas in Harmonic Analysis, ideas which in the past have been mostly applied for the analysis and extraction of information from physical data, and which now are increasingly applied to organize and extract information and knowledge from any set of digital documents, from text to music to questionnaires. This form of signal processing on digital data, is part of the future of wavelet analysis.
