An intelligent agent is a type of software application that searches, retrieves and presents information from the Internet. This application automates the process of extracting data from the Internet, such as information selected based on a predefined criterion, keywords or any specified information/entity to be searched.
A number of research papers examine the use of agent technology to provide support to heterogeneous, distributed information search and retrieval in federated DLs, including information retrieval in the hybrid library, web-based information retrieval, mobile agents for remote information retrieval and processing, ontological agents for heterogeneous information retrieval, and the interoperability of distributed information retrieval. All proposed solutions are based on multi-agent systems.
