kick-off meeting

The M-Eco kick-off meeting attendance from 16th Feb. 2010 to 18th Feb. 2010 at Hannover, Germany was a great opportunity to explore ideas of personalized information retrieval, machine translation, speech recognition, M-Eco software architecture, and user requirements. Other non-technical issues also explored like agreements, advises, etc. The attendees of M-Eco work package partners AAU, RKI, LUH, BUT, and JRC are explored technical issues of project. Advisory board members WHO, HPA, INVS, ECDC and MBDS are given their valuable suggestions. The kick-off meeting was three days meeting.

Host Title: 
Collaborative Web Tagging Workshop at WWW2006

The use of clustering techniques enhances the user experience and thus the success of collaborative tagging services. We show that clustering techniques can improve the user experience of current tagging services. We first describe current limitations of tagging services, second, we give an overview of existing approaches. We then describe the algorithms we used for tag clustering and give experimental results and a variety of conclusions.

Extending a Hybrid Tag-Based Recommender System with Personalization

Publication Type:

Conference Paper

Source:

25th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing, ACM Press, Sierre, Switzerland (2010)

Keywords:

semantic; tag; recommendations; 2010; hybrid

Abstract:

Tagging activity has been recently identified as a potential source of knowledge about personal interests, preferences, goals, and other attributes known from user models. Tags themselves can be therefore used for finding personalized recommendations of items. This paper proposes a semantic extension for a hybrid tag-based recommender system, which suggests similar Web pages based on the similarity of their tags. The semantic extension aims at discovering tag relations which are not considered in basic syntax similarity. With the goal of generating more semantically grounded recommendations, the proposal extends a hybrid tag-based recommender system with a semantic factor, which looks for tag relations in different semantic sources. In order to evaluate the benefits acquired with the semantic extension, we have compared the new findings with results from a previous experiment involving 38 people from 12 countries using data from del.icio.us.
