5. Possible enhancements

5.1 Improved search strategy

To improve the search in the graph representing cyberspace, more clever exploration strategies, like a priority-first search or the Kruskal method [Sedgewick, 1989], could be done. This would require to have the search made on a weighted graph, i.e. a ranking scheme for the links contained in the World-Wide Web must be developed. To make the search faster, the use of collaborative software agents [Lashkari et al., 1994] can radically improve the time required for the information gathering. Partial information gathering, founded on empirical knowledge, could also be envisaged.
