A cyberbot is a software agent which is capable of learning from experience. It is a situated agent in that it exists in "cyberspace". It must interact with objects that it finds in that space. An example is a real-time Web search agent. Our cyberbot searches for Web pages by learning cue words, which are found in the neighborhood of a hyperlink that, in turn, leads to a page containing user-supplied key words. The cyberbot uses the same kind of foraging search procedure that is used in MAVRIC (a physical robot).

The cyberbot project is currently on hold owing to a dirth of students interested in this application. But look for more information in the not-too-distant-future!
