Social and Behavioral Aspects of a Tag-based Recommender System

Publication Type:

Conference Paper

Source:

9th IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA), IEEE Press, Pisa, Italy (2009)

Keywords:

tag; recommendation; kiwi; social; behavior

Abstract:

Collaborative tagging has emerged as a useful means to organize and share resources on the Web. Recommender systems have been utilized tags for identifying similar resources and generate personalized recommendations. In this paper, we analyze social and behavioral aspects of a tag-based recommender system which suggests similar Web pages based on the similarity of their tags.
Tagging behavior and language anomalies in tagging activities are some aspects examined from an experiment involving 38 people from 12 countries.

New Web Application Engineering book out

Web Application Engineering Book

Web Application Engineering is a new book where I participated as a co-author. The book provides an overview over various aspects of web application engineering such as the introduction to web technologies, processes, requirements, design, implementation, maintanace and evolution, adaptation, quality assessment, and web 2.0 and semantic web. The book provides a good basis for advanced but also basic course on web engineering but serves also as a reference point to the literature on web engineering area. You can find the book at:

The 7th edition of Summer School on Ontological Engineering and Semantic Web

From 5th to 11th of July, I participated of the 7th edition of Summer School on Ontological Engineering and Semantic Web in Cercedilla, Spain. We were 50 students (mostly in the 1st year of our PhD) confined in a residence surrounded by spectacular nature.

Every morning we had talks from the tutors and famed invited speakers such as Prof Stefan Decker and Peter Mika. After each talk, we had hands-on session to put in practice what we had learnt from early “lessons”. The quality of the tutors, head by Prof Enrico Motta, contributed a lot for the success of the school.

Impressions from UMAP 2009

From June 22 to June 26, 2009 I attended the User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization (UMAP) conference. In particular Peter Dolog and I had the paper entitle “A Personalized Tag-Based Recommendation in Social Web Systems” accepted at the International Workshop Adaptation and Personalization for Web 2.0.

Coming back from eLBa 2009

eLBa 2009 provided a platform for practitioners and scientists to exhange ideas on development on elearning technologies. It also created a very nice atmosphere for free communication and discussion. It had both science workshops and business workshops parallel, and participants could change between as they like on condition that he/she understand German well.
