The main goal of this research was to investigate means of intelligent support for retrieval of web documents. We have proposed the architecture of the web tool system -Trillian, which discovers the interests of users without their interaction and uses them for autonomous searching of related web content. Discovered pages are suggested to the user. The discovery of user interests is based on analysis of documents that users had visited in the past. We have created a module for completely

The post analysis step is based on a variant of the suffix tree clustering algorithm. We primarily focus on overall Trillian architecture design and the process of discovering topics of interests. We have implemented an experimental version of Trillian and evaluated the quality, speed and usefulness of the proposed system. We have shown that clustering is a feasible technique for extraction of interests from web documents. We consider the proposed architecture to be quite promising and suitable for future extensions.
