The irreversible trend toward decentralized information sources makes less and less adequate the current approaches to search mostly based on a centralized index. The Constraint Based Knowledge Brokers (CBKB) model is a first attempt to provide an efficient decentralized search engine, and it does so by exploiting the power of constraints. One of the reasons of its efficiency comes from sending the information providers requests based on very specific and prefiltered information. This is done… CONTINUE READING
