Abstract
The Web is based on a browsing paradigm that makes
it di cult to retrieve and integrate data from multi-
ple sites. Today, the only way to do this is to build
specialized applications, which are time-consuming to
develop and di cult to maintain. We are addressing
this problem by creating the technology and tools for
rapidly constructing information agents that extract,
query, and integrate data from web sources. Our ap-
proach is based on a simple, uniform representation
that makes it e cient to integrate multiple sources.
Instead of building specialized algorithms for handling
