Recently, Artificial Intelligence techniques have proved useful inhelping users to handle the large amount of information on the Internet.The idea of personalized search engines, intelligent software agents,and recommender systems has been widely accepted among users who requireassistance in searching, sorting, classifying, filtering and sharingthis vast quantity of information. In this paper, we present astate-of-the-art taxonomy of intelligent recommender agents on theInternet. We have… Expand

Beyond Recommender Systems: Helping People Help Each Other
TLDR
This work presents a framework for understanding recommender systems and surveys a number of distinct approaches in terms of this framework, and suggests two main research challenges: helping people form communities of interest while respecting personal privacy and developing algorithms that combine multiple types of information to compute recommendations. Expand
E-Commerce Recommendation Applications
TLDR
An explanation of how recommender systems are related to some traditional database analysis techniques is presented, and a taxonomy ofRecommender systems is created, including the inputs required from the consumers, the additional knowledge required from a database, the ways the recommendations are presented to consumers,The technologies used to create the recommendations, and the level of personalization of the recommendations.

Learning user information interests through extraction of semantically significant phrases
TLDR
This paper describes an intelligent agent developed to address this problem similar to research systems under development for similar tasks, and presents the solution in the context of a Lotus Notes system, consisting of electronic mail, bulletin boards, news services, and databases. Expand
Combining Collaborative Filtering with Personal Agents for Better Recommendations
TLDR
This paper shows that a CF framework can be used to combine personal IF agents and the opinions of a community of users to produce better recommendations than either agents or users can produce alone. Expand

  • 1993
TLDR
Results of a set of experiments are presented in which a small population of information filtering agents was evolved to make a personalized selection of news articles from the USENET newsgroups, showing that the artificial evolution component of the system is responsible for improving the recall rate of the selected set of articles, while learning from feedback component improves the precision rate.
