Social tagging recommendation is an urgent and useful enabling technology for Web 2.0. In this paper, we present a systematic study of low-order tensor decomposition approach that are specifically targeted at the very sparse data problem in tagging recommendation problem. Low-order polynomials have low functional complexity, are uniquely capable of(More)
In many real-world domains, link graph is one of the most effective ways to model the relationships between objects. Measuring the similarity of objects in a link graph is studied by many researchers, but an effective and efficient method is still expected. Based on our observation of link graphs from real domains, we find the block structure naturally(More)
Similarity calculation has many applications, such as information retrieval, and collaborative filtering, among many others. It has been shown that link-based similarity measure, such as SimRank, is very effective in characterizing the object similarities in networks, such as the Web, by exploiting the object-to-object relationship. Unfortunately, it is(More)
Algorithms defining similarities between objects of an information network are important of many IR tasks. SimRank algorithm and its variations are popularly used in many applications. Many fast algorithms are also developed. In this note, we first reformulate them as random walks on the network and express them using forward and backward transition(More)
Community Question Answering (or CQA) services (aka Q/A social networks) have become widespread in the last several years. It is seen as a potential alternative to search as it avoids sifting through a large number of answers (most likely ranked) to get at the desired information. Currently, best answers in CQA are determined either manually or through a(More)
