SMAPI - Sistema Multi-Agente de Pesquisa
Inteligente, Célia Talma Martins de Pinho Valente, Master Degree
SMAPI is an
agent-based software that launches an information searching agent for each
domain in the Web it tries to look into. These agents, automatically created
by SMAPI, improve their own performance through some learning features.
The basis for their learning algorithm is the set of setences in which
the keywords appear, called contexts, which in turn, are removed from the
pages classifyed with "Hot" by the user (through the user´s feedback).
The importance of the page is also calculated according the the respective
position of the key words in the text. These contexts are communicated
to all the searching agent community and used by all of them during the
The final results presented to the user include a set of Web pages'
addresses associated with their respective classification.
Here you can find the SMAPI Report.
