Abstract

This paper discusses the issues involved in the application of machine learning techniques to the management of Internet-based information. We present a general architecture, and describe how this has been instantiated in several different applications. The first three of these systems provide assistance to a user sorting incoming mail, reading USENET news or identifying World-Wide Web pages of interest; the final system constructs a personalised on-line newspaper, assembled from documents gathered by a Web robot. A number of machine learning techniques have been used in the construction of these systems; some comparative results are presented.
