A Navigation Assistant for Data Source Selection and Integration

Scott B. Huffman and David Steier

We describe an intelligent assistant that is being designed to help information specialists select and combine data sources to produce new information services. Rather than fully planning out and answering queries autonomously, the assistant will provide interactive knowledge-based support for a specialist designing a query plan. The assistant uses heuristics and constraints to help its user navigate through a potentially large set of data sources to locate those needed to produce a desired information service.
