Abstract : The major problem of the current WWW technology is that it is based on the 'pull' style of information delivery, where the uploaded information waits for visitors, and not the 'push' style (Franklin and Zdonik 1998), where the new information is delivered to the users when it becomes available. Although there are several research studies focusing on the development of 'push' based information delivery, these studies overlook following two important functions: Firstly, many of the new studies are not concerned with existing HTML documents. It is not wise to expect that all people will follow the new suggested representation like XML or RSS and will convert their existing information to the new format. Secondly, the information classification system is the other issue. Without using the appropriate classification system, people find that delivered information is often redundant. Therefore, an automated classification system that selects only the relevant information for each user is required. The main research task for this system is how to implement the incremental knowledge acquisition process for the classification knowledge because human classification knowledge is always heuristic and changes rapidly and, therefore, it is necessary to maintain the knowledge base incrementally.
