New York-based Internet start-up Vayu Web has announced a new tool for building intelligent interactive Web sites.
The automated sites will roll on the screen like television adverts. The Vayu Web 500 tool uses artificial intelligence to figure out the best presentation to give individuals accessing the site, depending on what browser or speed of connection they are using. It can also preload pages and create an automatic rolling mechanism so that the surfer experiences minimal delays when moving around the site.
According to Aimee Gallagher, senior Internet designer at Vayu Web, users can run existing Web sites through the Vayu Web design studio or use the tool to construct a new site. Her mission is to speed up and refresh the presentation of goods and services on the Net. ?People have been spending millions on Web sites, but they have been slow and difficult to navigate. Then they wonder why their products aren?t selling,? she said.
The company launched its demonstration site last Monday and has had to pull together a consortium of Internet service providers including Uunet, Netcom and AOL in order to harness enough Internet power to support the projected one million users a day who will access the site. Currently it has harnessed enough Net horsepower to almost match the entire capacity of the East Coast?s central switching hub in Virginia. The launch site can be found at www.vayuweb.com.
