New comer Virgin.net and Autonomy have announced plans to provide the world's first online personalised newspaper.
The paper will be compiled according to the user's request and will be sent in one omnibus edition. It is hoped that using the technology supplied by Autonomy, users can get the stories they want from the Web without having to trawl through reams of data.
Once a user has completed a form - identifying the topics he/she wants covered and the sources to query, intelligent agents are sent out to scan the sources you have requested.
Autonomy will also work off-line using a "kennel" service which is housed at the user's Virgin.net server. The service allows personal papers to be compiled without the user actually being connected. Once the user logs on, Kennel sends out the paper as requested.
Autonomy is at www.agentware.com.
