Abstract

Almost without any doubt, the Internet and Web in particular, have brought about radical changes in information retrieval with unparallel benefits to organizations and individuals to gain access to vast amount of articles and documents. The focus on restricting inappropriate materials at their source is not well suited to the nature and open architecture of Internet, where information source maybe in a different legal jurisdiction than the recipient. This paper proposes a reactive approach based on SOM (Self-Organising Maps) neural network to deal with dynamic blocking and filtering of Internet contents. We describe the design and implementation of a web policing proxy (WebPolice) based on a Kohonen's neural network model that attempts to classify the web contents dynamically using competitive learning. The parameter setting of the network has been experimented to obtain the optimal classification rate and performance for the model.
