Foxtrot Recommender System: User profiling, Ontologies and the World Wide Web

Foxtrot Recommender System: User profiling, Ontologies and the World Wide Web
Foxtrot Recommender System: User profiling, Ontologies and the World Wide Web
The Foxtrot recommender system recommends on-line research papers from a dynamic database. An ontology is used to represent user profiles, allowing ontological relationships to infer more information about a profile than can be observed directly from user behaviour and the use of a shared training set for multi-class classification. Profiles are also visualized in terms users understand, allowing direct profile feedback. A year long trial with over 300 people is currently underway to evaluate this system, while it provides a real world service to the staff and students of Southampton University.

Abstract

The Foxtrot recommender system recommends on-line research papers from a dynamic database. An ontology is used to represent user profiles, allowing ontological relationships to infer more information about a profile than can be observed directly from user behaviour and the use of a shared training set for multi-class classification. Profiles are also visualized in terms users understand, allowing direct profile feedback. A year long trial with over 300 people is currently underway to evaluate this system, while it provides a real world service to the staff and students of Southampton University.
