A different approach to gather information on the Web, by viewing the search problem as a distributed problem that requires cooperation among different agents to arrive at a solution, is proposed. The approach differs radically from that of current search engines, by being distributed, rather than parallel. The system is composed of autonomous agents cooperating to achieve a better result, rather than spiders feeding a large amount of information into a database.
