Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 431)


This work proposes a stochastic web-based natural language dialogue planner for an intelligent web filtering model, which allows users to filter search results obtained by a traditional search engine and assists them to find what they really are looking for. Experiments with web users and different interaction settings show the promise of the approach to web-based adaptive planning.
