Intelligent Web Search via Personalizable Meta-search Agents
This paper addresses several problems associated with the specification of Web searches, and the retrieval, filtering, and rating of Web pages in order to improve the relevance, precision and quality of search results.

Users create personalized search taxonomies, in the form of a Weighted SemanticTaxonomy Tree. Consultation with a Web-based ontology agent refines the terms in the tree with positively- and negatively-related terms. The concepts represented in the tree are then transformed into queries processed by existing search engines. Each returned page is rated according to user-specified preferences such as semantic relevance, syntactic relevance, categorical match, and page populari...
