A Decentralized Architecture for Sharing and Reusing Lifelogs

  title={A Decentralized Architecture for Sharing and Reusing Lifelogs},
  author={Johnson Iyilade and Julita Vassileva},
  booktitle={UMAP Workshops},
Nowadays, there are growing number of devices and applications that assist user in her day-to-day activities. These devices and applications collect and store enormous amount of information about user’s daily lives clickstreams, events, interests, etc. These life-logs are valuable data source for enriching user modeling when shared and reused across applications and devices. While many frameworks and solutions have been proposed for user model sharing and reuse, most existing solutions follow…

A Peer to Peer Architecture for a Distributed User Model

A peer to peer architecture to achieve a distributed user model that extracts and translates information into pre-defined templates, which are used to ensure interoperability when communicating with other peers, through an internal communication broker.

2nd Workshop on LifeLong User Modelling

This workshop focuses on an emerging chal- lenge, namely the creation of lifelong user models from a potentially large and diverse data corpus that has been created over a very long period of time.

A Blockchain Platform for User Data Sharing Ensuring User Control and Incentives

We propose a new platform for user modeling with blockchains that allows users to share data without losing control and ownership of it and applied it to the domain of travel booking. Our new

Unified Relevance Feedback for Multi-Application User Interest Modeling

This research studies the importance of combining various implicit and explicit relevance feedback indicators in a multi-application environment and demonstrates the aggregation of implicit and semi-explicit user interest data across multiple everyday applications using the IPM framework.

Blockchain for Industry 5.0: Vision, Opportunities, Key Enablers, and Future Directions

A first-of-its-kind survey on BC as a security enabler in Industry 5.0 is presented to present solutions that would assist industry practitioners, academicians, and researchers to drive novel BC-assisted solutions in Industry5.0 verticals.

This research proposal presents a multi-application modeling technique that combines implicit and semi-explicit feedback across multiple everyday applications that allows different applications used for different purposes by the user to contribute user activity and its context to mutually support users with unified relevance feedback.

Factors Influencing User's Attitude to Secondary Information Sharing and Usage

An understanding of factors influencing user decisions about privacy in secondary context can assist both technology designers and policy makers in the development of appropriate privacy protection that meets the needs and expectations of the user.

User-Controlled Privacy-Preserving User Profile Data Sharing based on Blockchain

A decentralized data sharing architecture with MultiChain blockchain in the travel domain is constructed, which is also applicable to other similar domains including education, health, and sports, and an evaluation of the performance of the model is presented.

A presentation of the core features of these commercial systems may provide a source of information and inspiration for the design, implementation, and deployment of future user modeling systems in research and commercial environments.

Proceedings of the Lifelong User Modelling Workshop , at UMAP ' 09 User Modeling Adaptation , and Personalization

An architecture for very long term user modelling, based upon personal user model clouds, is explored, suggesting potential synergies between distributed and centralised user modelling architectures, and proposing an architecture which combines both.

Personis: A Server for User Models

The paper describes the architecture, design and implementation of Personis, a user model server, and indicates that the approach and implementation provide a workable server for small to medium sized user collections of information needed to adapt the hypertext.

Linkage, aggregation, alignment and enrichment of public user profiles with Mypes

The so-called Mypes service that connects, aggregates, aligns and enriches profile information form diverse online services and makes the bundled profiles available for end-users and third-party applications is presented.

  • 2004
The paper reviews the development of generic user modeling systems over the past twenty years and discusses the architectures that have been explored so far, namely shell systems that form part of the application, central server systems that communicate with several applications, and possible future user modeling agents that physically follow the user.

Lifelogging: Privacy and empowerment with memories for life

It is argued that some of the privacy concerns are overblown, and that much research and commentary on lifelogging has made the unrealistic assumption that the information gathered is for private use, whereas, in a more socially-networked online world, much of it will have public functions and will be voluntarily released into the public domain.

Mediation of user models for enhanced personalization in recommender systems

A generic user modeling data representation model is provided, which demonstrates its compatibility with existing recommendation techniques, and allows improving the quality of the recommendations provided to the users in certain conditions.

An architecture for life-long user modelling

The architecture combines different steps required for a user prole, including feature extraction and representation, reasoning, recommendation and presentation, in a united architecture for the creation of life-long user profiles.
