Abstract

The suggested approach, which is grounded in automatic textual analysis of Web documents and general-purpose search algorithms, aims to address the Web search problem by creating dynamic and 'intelligent' personal spiders (agents) that take users' requests and perform real-time, customized searches. In user evaluation, the genetic algorithm spider obtained a significantly higher recall value than that of the best first search spider. The Java-based interface is found to be a necessary component for design of a truly interactive and dynamic Web agent.
