Summary: Managing fast-growing personal information is a time-consuming and laborious task that affects people’s daily life. In addition, learning new skills is always an obstacle for end users, to fully take advantage of any new technology-based services. A framework is highly desired here to allow people to collect and fuse personal information without dealing with complex emerging technologies. In this paper, we introduce our e-service based Information Fusion framework for end-users. This framework enables end users to collect scattered information from diverse autonomous sources, and transparently create a repeatable process by which newer instances of the same information can be obtained in the future. By exploiting this framework, users won’t need to repeat the manual information gathering task over and over again. We present our framework and provide some implementation details.
