The paper presents a multi-agent approach for ontology population based on natural language semantic analysis. In this multi-agent model, agents of two main kinds interact: information agents correspond to meaningful units of the information being retrieved, and rule agents implement population rules of a given ontology and a semantic-syntactic model of a language.
