Intelligent information technology (iIT) that focuses on Web Intelligence (WI) has proved to be effective for intelligent information processing and solving the complex real world problems. The applications of WI includes e-finance, e-science, and e-service, and it represents a significant benefit in IT development. Enormous number of new data records that are generated every second are required to be summarized and synthesized to support problem solving and decision making in organizations, such as business, science, government, and university organizations. The main feature of the iIT is the ability to combine Artificial Intelligence (AI), computational intelligence, WI, and intelligent agents in the design and implementation of intelligent Web-based information systems. The requirements supported by WI technology include information empowerment, knowledge sharing, virtual social communities, service enrichment, and practical wisdom development.
