While recommendation approaches exploiting different input sources have started to proliferate in the literature, an explicit study of the effect of the combination of heterogeneous inputs is still missing. On the other hand, in this context there are sides to recommendation quality requiring further characterisation and methodological research - a gap that is acknowledged in the field. We present a comparative study on the influence that different types of information available in social… Expand
Social Network and Tag Sources Based Augmenting Collaborative Recommender System
TLDR
This paper revise the user-based collaborative filtering (CF) technique, and proposes two recommendation approaches fusing usergenerated tags and social relations in a novel way that achieve more precise recommendations than the compared approaches. Expand
Exploiting Social Networks in Recommendation: a Multi-Domain Comparison
TLDR
It is shown that social ltering techniques achieve very high performance in the three domains discussed (bookmarks, music, and movies), although they may have lower coverage than traditional collaborative ltering algorithms. Expand
A Framework for Evaluating Personalized Ranking Systems by Fusing Different Evaluation Measures
TLDR
This work provides a general framework that can handle an arbitrary number of evaluation measures and help end-users rank the systems available to them and investigates the robustness of the proposed methodology using published results from an experimental study involving multiple big datasets and evaluation measures. Expand
Towards more targeted recommendations in folksonomies
TLDR
This paper considers a new dimension in a folksonomy classically composed of three dimensions and proposes an approach to group users with close interests through quadratic concepts and uses such structures in order to propose a personalized recommendation system of users, tags, and resources. Expand
Popularity Bias in Recommendation: A Multi-stakeholder Perspective
TLDR
This dissertation, which studies the impact of popularity bias in recommender systems from a multi-stakeholder perspective, proposes several algorithms each approaching the popularity bias mitigation from a different angle and compares their performances using several metrics with some other state-of-the-art approaches in the literature. Expand
Integrating heterogeneous information via flexible regularization framework for recommendation
TLDR
It is found that attribute information of users and items can significantly improve recommendation accuracy, and their contribution seems more important than that of social relations. Expand
A general and effective diffusion-based recommendation scheme on coupled social networks
TLDR
A simple recommendation algorithm based on a diffusion process which integrates the networks of friends and user-product relations is introduced, showing that social networks improve the accuracy of recommendation for inactive users, and increase the diversity of the recommended products for active users. Expand
Mix and Rank: A Framework for Benchmarking Recommender Systems
TLDR
This work proposes a novel benchmarking framework that mixes different evaluation measures in order to rank the recommender systems on each benchmark dataset, separately, and discovers sets of correlated measures as well as sets of evaluation measures that are least correlated. Expand
On improving aggregate recommendation diversity and novelty in folksonomy-based social systems
TLDR
A hybrid DaPPR model that combines two ranking processes on the user–resource and the resource–tag bipartite graphs is specifically designed to meet the requirements in folksonomy-based systems. Expand
Recommendation generation using personalized weight of meta-paths in heterogeneous information networks
TLDR
This work proposes a heterogeneous information network-based recommendation model called HeteroPRS for personalized top-N recommendations using binary implicit feedback that utilizes the potential of meta-information related to items to improve the effectiveness of the recommendations. Expand

A study of heterogeneity in recommendations for a social music service
TLDR
The obtained results show that, in Last.fm, social tagging and explicit social networking information provide effective and heterogeneous item recommendations, and give first insights on the feasibility of exploiting the above non performance recommendation characteristics by hybrid approaches.

Improving Recommender Systems by Incorporating Social Contextual Information
TLDR
This article proposes a factor analysis approach based on probabilistic matrix factorization to alleviate the data sparsity and poor prediction accuracy problems by incorporating social contextual information, such as social networks and social tags. Expand

  • 2010
TLDR
This chapter presents a new paradigm of recommender systems which can utilize information in social networks, including user preferences, item’s general acceptance, and influence from social friends, and develops a probabilistic model to make personalized recommendations from such information. Expand
A new approach to evaluating novel recommendations
TLDR
A user-centric experiment shows that even though a social-based approach recommends less novel items than the authors' CB, users' perceived quality is better than those recommended by a pure CB method. Expand
’Knowing me, knowing you’ — Using profiles and social networking to improve recommender systems
TLDR
It is suggested thatRecommender systems can be improved by combining the benefits of social networking applications — such as explicit networks of trust — with the matching capabilities of recommender systems. Expand
Recommender System of Online Social Network
Nowadays, more and more recommender systems make use of the users’ online behaviors and social connections in order to help people find interesting information. In this paper, I discusses threeExpand
Precision-oriented evaluation of recommender systems: an algorithmic comparison
TLDR
In three experiments with three state-of-the-art recommenders, four of the evaluation methodologies are consistent with each other and differ from error metrics, in terms of the comparative recommenders' performance measurements. Expand
On social networks and collaborative recommendation
TLDR
This work created a collaborative recommendation system that effectively adapts to the personal information needs of each user, and adopts the generic framework of Random Walk with Restarts in order to provide with a more natural and efficient way to represent social networks. Expand
On Unexpectedness in Recommender Systems: Or How to Expect the Unexpected
TLDR
A model to improve user satisfaction by generating unexpected recommendations based on the utility theory of economics is proposed and a new concept of unexpectedness is proposed as recommending to users those items that depart from what they expect from the system. Expand
The task-dependent effect of tags and ratings on social media access
TLDR
Results on content search and tag suggestion indicate that the profile created by a user's annotations can be used effectively to adapt the ranking to personal preferences, and show that a combination of rating and tagging information can improve tasks like search and recommendation. Expand
