Wireless Web Needs Wireless Bots
Posted: 27-Jan-2001 [Source:]

[Bots respond to user preferencess offering personalized information.]

by Jayson Matthews -- "BOT 2001 banged its way into San Francisco yesterday, promising a bounty of bot-based babble on everything from SearchBots to ChatterBots and KnowledgeBots.

"Part of the conference, which was hosted by, centered around wireless bots, an area many pundits believe represents the make-or-break technology behind a working wireless Web.

"Dr. Michael Pazzani, CEO of bot developer, is one such pundit. Currently on leave from a professorship at UC Irvine, Pazzani doesn't mince words when it comes to discussing the importance of bot technology in today's increasingly wireless world. In his view, it's abot darn time people take notice.

"Everybody dreams of a wireless Web that is fast and easy to navigate," he says. "The current reality is slow connections on devices with tiny little screens. Consequently, the only way to make a wireless Web really work is by creating bots that can learn individual tastes and then go out and automatically create a personalized environment that works off those tastes."

"That doesn't mean, he stresses, turning to strategies that call for the selective dissemination of information. Anyone, he reminds, who has checked off a plethora of personal questions while registering for a Web-based service would shutter at the thought of attempting such a feat on their mobile phone.
