D-SIFTER: Distributed Information Filtering System

D-SIFTER adds a distributed flavor to the SIFTER project. The primary goals of the D-SIFTER project are: a) To develop a distributed and multi-agent-based information filtering system, which will rank-order the incoming documents, present them to the user and learn the user profile, with a minimal user interaction, b) To access the suitability of various distributed-object models to the domain of distributed information filtering, and c) To investigate the inter-agent communication protocols and explore the possibility of using market-based economic models for inter-agent collaboration.D-SIFTER project has been supported in past by the NSF.
