Notes

Abstract: A vast amount of information is available on the Internet, and naturally, many information gathering tools have been developed. Several search engines with different characteristics, such as Alta Vista, Lycos, Infoseek, and others are available. However, the web information retrieval technology is still in its infancy, and there is need for considerable improvement. Some inherent difficulties are: (1) the web information is diverse and highly unstructured, (2) the size of information is large and it grows at an exponential rate, and (3) the current search engine technology is still rudimentary. While the first two issues are more profound and require long term solutions, it may be possible to develop software around the search engines to improve the quality of the information retrieved. In this paper the authors present a natural language interface system to a search engine and discuss some of the results obtained.
