Tao, Xiaohui and Li, Yuefeng and Lau, Raymond Y. K. and Geva, Shlomo (2010) Ontology-based specific and exhaustive user profiles for constraint information fusion for multi-agents. In: WI 2010: IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence, 31 Aug-3 Sep 2010, Toronto, Canada.
Intelligent agents are an advanced technology utilized in Web Intelligence. When searching information from a distributed Web environment, information is retrieved by multi-agents on the client site and fused on the broker site. The current information fusion techniques rely on cooperation of agents to provide statistics. Such techniques are computationally expensive and unrealistic in the real world. In this paper, we introduce a model that uses a world ontology constructed from the Dewey Decimal Classification to acquire user profiles. By search using specific and exhaustive user profiles, information fusion techniques no longer rely on the statistics provided by agents. The model has been successfully evaluated using the large INEX data set simulating the distributed Web environment.
