Abstract

Integration of heterogeneous information in the context of Internet is becoming a key activity to enable a more organized and semantically meaningful access to several kinds of information in the form of data sources, multimediadocuments and web services. In NeP4B (Networked Peers for Business), a project funded by the Italian Ministry of University and Research, we developed an approach for providing a uniform representation of data, multimedia and services,thus allowing users to obtain sets of data, multimedia documents and lists of webservices as query results. NeP4B is based on a P2P network of semantic peers, connected one with each other by means of automatically generated mappings.In this paper we present a new architecture for NeP4B, based on a Multi-Agent System.We claim that such a solution may be more efficient and effective, thanks to the agents’ autonomy and intelligence, in a dynamic environment, where sources are frequently added (or deleted) to (from) the network.
