Pheromonic Representation of User Quests by Digital Structures.
Boros, Endre; Kantor, Paul B.; Neu, Dave J.
Proceedings of the ASIS Annual Meeting, v36 p633-42 1999
In the "Ant World" project, items to be retrieved are "quests" represented by entire collections of judged documents. To save space and time, methods were developed for representing these complex entities in a short string of about 1,000 bytes, called a Digital Information Pheromone (DIP). Principles are presented for determining the DIP for a given quest and for matching DIPs to each other. (Author/AEF)
