Privacy of Internet users is at stake because they expose personal information in posts created in online communities, in search queries, and other activities. An adversary that monitors a community may identify the users with the most sensitive properties and utilize this knowledge against them (e.g., by adjusting the pricing of goods or targeting ads of(More)
This paper presents DIAS, a distributed alert service for digital libraries, currently under development in project DIET. We first discuss the models and languages for expressing user profiles and notifications. Then we present the data structures, algorithms and protocols that underly the peer-to-peer agent architecture of DIAS.
In the information filtering paradigm, clients subscribe to a server with continuous queries or profiles that express their information needs. Clients can also publish documents to servers. Whenever a document is published, the continuous queries satisfying this document are found and notifications are sent to appropriate clients. This article deals with(More)
Information filtering, also referred to as publish/subscribe, complements one-time searching since users are able to subscribe to information sources and be notified whenever new documents of interest are published. In approximate information filtering only selected information sources, that are likely to publish documents relevant to the user interests in(More)
In the selective dissemination of information (or publish/subscribe) paradigm, clients subscribe to a server with continuous queries (or profiles) that express their information needs. Clients can also publish documents to servers. Whenever a document is published, the continuous queries satisfying this document are found and notifications are sent to(More)
We study the problem of selective dissemination of information in P2P networks. We present our work on data models and laiguages for textual information dissemination and discuss a relemnt P2P architecture that motivates our efforts. We also survey our results on the computational complexity of three related algorithmic problems (query satisfiability,(More)
The complexity of the current global information infrastructure requires novel means of understanding and exploiting the dynamics of information. One means may be through the concept of an information ecosystem. An information ecosystem is analo gous to a natural ecosystem in which there are flo ws of materials and energy analo gous to information flow(More)
