Agents are software programs that perform tasks on behalf of others and they are used to clean the text data with their characteristics. Agents are task oriented with the ability to learn by themselves and they react to the situation. Learning characteristics of an agent is done by verifying its previous experience from its knowledgebase. An agent concept is a complementary approach to the Object Oriented paradigm with respect to the design and implementation of the autonomous entities driven by beliefs, goals and plans. Preference based text data cleaning is based on the selection issue. Preferences are given by the user in the form of alphabets, numbers and special characters.
