Abstract

The growth of the WWW has resulted in amounts of information beyond what is suitable for human consumption. Automated information processing agents are needed. However, with the current technology it is difficult and expensive to build automated agents. To facilitate automated agents on the web we present an information food chain for advanced applications on the WWW. Every part of the food chain provides information that enables the existence of the next part.
