Recommender systems aim to support decision-makers by providing decision advice. We offer multi-criteria decision recommendations based on a performance matrix and a partial order on criteria submitted by the user. Our method is to aggregate performance measures over all criteria based on inferences about preferences from the decision-maker’s input. After reviewing some multicriteria aggregation operators, we present a recommender system that uses the Choquet integral of a fuzzy measure to…

Recommender Systems Based on Resonance Relationship of Criteria With Choquet Operation
A novel recommendation method based on the resonance relationship of user criteria with Choquet Operation for building a decision-making model that can be applied in appropriate contexts to improve efficiency and minimize the limitations of the current recommender systems is proposed.
A Voting Procedures Recommender System for Decision-Making
It is interesting to propose a recommendation system that assists novice facilitators in their voting procedures choice, and the choice of a voting procedure is not easy for a novice facilitator.
Artificial Neural Networks and Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithms for Preference Prediction in Multi-Criteria Recommender Systems
A methodological framework is presented that trains artificial neural networks with particle swarm optimization algorithms and uses the neural networks for integrating the multi-criteria rating information and determining the preferences of users and the empirical results show that the proposed model has a higher prediction accuracy than the corresponding traditional recommendation technique and other multi-Criteria recommender systems.

A Decision Support System for Multiple Criteria Decision Making Problems
This paper proposes and constructing decision making system performing online software which implements the algorithm of MOORA and COPRAS techniques with an example of robot selection to test the applicability and validate multi criteria decision problem results.
Preference modeling by exploiting latent components of ratings
A new recommendation approach was proposed by investigating the latent components of user ratings to decompose an existing rating into several components via a cost-sensitive learning strategy that provides an intuitive preference modeling strategy via multiple component analysis at an individual perspective.

A type of operator for aggregation called an ordered weighted aggregation (OWA) operator is introduced and its performance is found to be between those obtained using the AND operator and the OR operator.

Elicitation of 2-additive bi-capacity parameters
This paper addresses the problem of eliciting a bipolar Choquet integral with respect to a 2-additive bi-capacity and presents several techniques based on solving an optimization problem, taking into account the possible interaction, or not, with the DM.
