On the Usability of Software Agents for Creating and Employing Links in Context
This report presents the idea of 'linking in context' as a novel way of offering Web users recommendations for concepts related to what they are browsing. The model presented utilises, extends, and combines ideas from open hypermedia with those from Web assistants and recommender systems to deliver a personalised Web recommendation system. The integration of the various concepts is facilitated by the use of a multi-agent framework. The automatic creation and maintenance of links is an important aspect of the presented work. A technique whereby links are mined from the Web and stored in context in a way that enables link re-use is also outlined.

Abstract

This report presents the idea of 'linking in context' as a novel way of offering Web users recommendations for concepts related to what they are browsing. The model presented utilises, extends, and combines ideas from open hypermedia with those from Web assistants and recommender systems to deliver a personalised Web recommendation system. The integration of the various concepts is facilitated by the use of a multi-agent framework. The automatic creation and maintenance of links is an important aspect of the presented work. A technique whereby links are mined from the Web and stored in context in a way that enables link re-use is also outlined.
