Abstract:
In this paper we present a second generation URL monitoring tool which enables the collaborative evaluation of
URL content changes. In our implementation, a document monitoring agent works alongside a recommender
system. Using information provided by the monitoring agent, the collaborative system alerts users when
documents they are monitoring have changed. The monitoring agent provides automatic evaluation of the nature
of the change. Users, however, add subjective evaluations; one user's effort informs all others monitoring the
same URL. Based on these subjective evaluations, the collaborative system can filter the changed URLs,
providing customized notifications for each user based on individual preferences. In this paper, we describe the
implemented system and usage results
