This project was implemented during the Winter break of 1999-2000. The predominant feature of Yarrow is that in contrast to the lack of adaptive learning features in existing meta-search engines, Yarrow is equipped with a practical and efficient learning algorithm so that it is capable of helping the user search for the desired documents with as little feedback as possible. Currently, Yarrow can query eight of the most popular search engines and is able to perform document parsing and indexing, and learning in real-time on the client side.
