English abstract

Information gathering in Internet is a complex activity. A solution consists in to assist Internet users in their information gathering processes by means of distributed intelligent agents in order to find the fittest information to their information needs. In this paper we describe a fuzzy linguistic multi-agent model that incorporates information filtering techniques in its structure, i.e., a collaborative filtering agent. In such a way, the information filtering possibilities of multi-agent system on the Web are increased and its retrieval results are improved
