DEVONAGENT ABOUT TO REVOLUTIONISE THE SEARCH FOR INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET
Bietigheim-Bissingen (Germany, EU), 7th of January, 2003 —
DEVONtechnologies announces the development of a new software that makes
the search for information on the Internet easier and much more accurate
than possible with today’s search engines.
Based on DEVONtechnologies’ revolutionary DEVONtechnology, DEVONagent is
the information finding tool of the next generation. It simulates the
behaviour of a human web surfer scanning the Internet for a specific piece
of information. It is ideal for journalists, scientists, lawyers, writers,
students or just anyone looking for complete and specific information
without having to dig through megabytes of data themselves.
Technically, DEVONagent uses a variety of searching techniques and collects
the results. Then it visits all the found web sites, downloads, analyses
and weights them to find the most relevant pages, eliminating information
junk automatically on-the-fly. At the end of the process, DEVONagent
returns with a complete summary of the found information, not only with a
list of links.
DEVONagent stores all or selected results in a searchable archive, can run
multiple queries simultaneously due to its highly multi-threaded
architecture, filters duplicate and unreachable sites, supports a variety
of search engines and summarises all results automatically. In addition, it
features a browser-independent preview and uses all major Mac OS X
technologies such as drag-and-drop and contextual menues.
Key features: Completely automatic querying of search engines with
collecting, analysing, weighting and summarising search results, topic
list, automatic junk filter, text-only preview, searchable web page
archive, highly multi-threaded, flexible plug-in architecture.
DEVONagent 1.0 is expected to be available for Mac OS X 10.2 or higher in
Q1/2003. More information about DEVONagent is available on
