An agent architecture for personalized Web stores

L. Ardissono, C. Barbero, A. Goy, G. Petrone
1999 Proceedings of the third annual conference on Autonomous Agents - AGENTS '99  
Our system exploits user modeling and exible hypermedia techniques to tailor to the user the suggestion of goods and the description of the store catalog.  ...  The system architecture includes an instance of each specialized agent and an agent which enables the communication among the others.  ...  For example, if she follows links in order to get more technical information about the products displayed, the system may then autonomously provide such information in the rest of the interaction; if,  ...
