Information fusion with subject-based information gathering method for intelligent multi-agent models

Tao, Xiaohui, King, John D., & Li, Yuefeng (2005) Information fusion with subject-based information gathering method for intelligent multi-agent models. In The 7th international conference on Information Integration and Web Based Applications & Services (iiWAS2005), 19-21 September 2005, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


This paper addresses the problem of information fusion using a multi-agent information gathering system. We present a hierarchical subject-based query expansion method, followed by a cooperative fusion algorithm for unstructured documents. We evaluate the performance using the traditional methods of precision and recall. The results show that the subject-based fusion method is promising and efficient.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
