A Smart Itsy Bitsy Spider for the Web
JASFIS Volume 49, Number 7, ISSN 0002-8231
This study tested two Web personal spiders (i.e., agents that take users' requests and perform real-time customized searches) based on best first-search and genetic-algorithm techniques. Both results were comparable and complementary, although the genetic algorithm obtained higher recall value. The Java-based interface was found to be necessary for design of an interactive and dynamic Web agent. (PEN)
