Abstract
Evaluates a range of commercially available software designed to act as intelligent search agents to assist users find materials of interest on the Internet and WWW or selects for them without asking. Notes that existing search engines can be useful in finding information but their different features and sometimes unfriendly interfaces can be confusing and intelligent search agents may be able to overcome these difficulties. Singles out one package: Autonomy; from Autonomy Corporation, describes its specific features and reports results of a test conducted with the software. Concludes that, from the test results, Autonomy is not yet ready to challenge the existing Internet search engines, which in the tests performed better than Autonomy with regard to recall and precision of information retrieval. Autonomy did not give enough feedback to control the search action
