For the purpose of coping with the affluence of information available over the Internet, an efficient, accurate and user-friendly system for information retrieval is mandatory. This paper presents an intelligent system based on the use of spoken dialogue as the main channel for user-system interface, use of key concepts, processing of unknown words, automatic acquisition of various kinds of knowledge for improving the performance, and agent technologies for system realization. Details of functions required for the agents are also described.
