MEMOIR - Software Agents for Finding Similar Users by Trails

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)

Researchers working with vast quantities of information in a geographically distributed manner are often confronted with problems of finding relevant information as well as colleagues with related interests. The MEMOIR project aims at assisting this collaboration by applying agent technology to user trails and documents. MEMOIR is an open architecture based on the existing Web infrastructure; in contrast to the Web, we treat links and trails as first class objects. Agents mine users' trails and links and also perform resource discovery tasks such as searching the Web. This paper describes the design, communication mechanism and implementation of the MEMOIR agent system which is currently being trialed in three end-user organisations.
