GETESS - Searching the Web Exploiting German Texts
2 Proceedings of the 3rd International Workshop on Cooperative Information Agents,
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence number 1652, Pages 113-124, Uppsala, Sweden, Springer, 1999

We present an intelligent information agent that uses semantic methods and natural language processing capabilites in order to gather tourist information from theWWWand present it to the human user in an intuitive, user-friendly way. Thereby, the information agent is designed such that as background knowledge and linguistic coverage increase, its benefits improve, while it guarantees state-of-the-art information and database retrieval capabilities as its bottom line.
