ADAPTIVE HIGHLIGHTING OF LINKS TO ASSIST SURFING ON THE INTERNET
Gathering of novel information from the WWW constitutes a real challenge for artificial intelligence (AI) methods. Large search engines do not offer a satisfactory solution, their indexing cycle is long and they may offer a huge amount of documents. An AI-based assistant agent is studied here, which sorts the availabe links by their estimated value for the user. By using this link-list the best links could be highlighted in the browser, making the user's choices easier during surfing. The method makes use of (i) "experts", i.e. pre-trained text classifiers, forming the long-term memory of the system, (ii) relative values of experts and value estimation of documents based on recent choices of the user. Value estimation adapts fast and forms the short-term memory of the system. All experiments show that surfing based filtering can efficiently highlight 10%â20% of the documents in about five steps, or less.
