This work presents the formal and practical design of agents skilled to help a user in achieving personalized navigation, by recommending related documents according to the user’s sensibility shown in similar-page searching mode. Our agent-based approach is based on the integration of different techniques and methodologies into a unique platform featuring: user profiling, fuzzy multi-sets, proximity-oriented fuzzy clustering, and knowledge based discovery technologies. Each of these approaches serves to solve one facet of the general problem (to carry out personalized web search by discovering documents relevant to the user) and is treated by specialized agents that achieve the final functionality through cooperation and task distribution.
