F-META: Soft-Computing Techniques for Fuzzy Meta Search Engines Development

Soft Computing applied to Meta Search Engines

The aim of this Project is to develop, to implement and to test (proofs) a prototype of the F-Meta Fuzzy Meta search engine, with an agent-based structure that allows to test in an autonomic way but in a global environment different soft computing based techniques. The goal would improve Web access and Web search.

The final objective is to favour a Technology Transference process, for making possible the use of these kinds of systems in real conditions. To accomplish this goal, in this project the tasks of reviewing existing techniques and State of Art, developing of new soft computing based mechanisms for information access on the Web, developing an agent-based metasearch engine, developing and programming the F-Meta Fuzzy meta search engine and testing the prototype, will be accomplished.
