Personalization techniques aim at helping people dealing with the ever growing amount of information by filtering it according to their interests. [...] Key Method For this, we first identify aspects from the user perspective, which can determine level and type of serendipity desired by users. Then, we propose a user model that can facilitate such user requirements, and enables serendipitous recommendations. The use case for this work focuses on TV recommender systems, however the ultimate goal is to explore…Expand
Bursting Filter Bubbles With Programmed Serendipity
When talking about personalization online, Google CEO Eric Schmidt recently said "it will be very hard for people to watch or consume something that has not in some sense been tailored for them."Expand
An investigation on the serendipity problem in recommender systems
TLDR
This issue, known as overspecialization or serendipity problem, is investigated by proposing a strategy that fosters the suggestion of surprisingly interesting items the user might not have otherwise discovered, by narrowing the accuracy loss. Expand
Adaptive and Personalized Systems Based on Semantics
TLDR
This chapter will focus on the application of semantics-aware representation techniques in recommender systems, user modeling, and social media analysis, and it will show how the exploitation of enhanced representation leads to an improvement of the results. Expand

TLDR
Researchers shifted from focusing on accuracy to achieve user satisfaction to a more user central measures known as beyond accuracy measures, believed to increase user satisfaction, and long-term interest. Expand
Closed-Loop Opinion Formation
TLDR
The results suggest that previous studies of the problem of moderating information sources by recommender systems have been too simplistic, and that user opinions can evolve in complex ways under the influence of personalized information sources. Expand

TLDR
This survey paper presents a literature review on serendipity as one of the beyond accuracy measures to overcome the over-specialization problem. Expand
Using knowledge anchors to facilitate user exploration of data graphs
TLDR
The work opens a new avenue in semantic data exploration which investigates the link between learning and knowledge exploration and provides the first framework that adopts educational theories to inform data graph exploration for knowledge expansion which extends the value of exploration and enables broader applications of data graphs in systems where the end users are not experts in the specific domain.

Effective Recommendation in Knowledge Portals The SKYbrary case study
Recommender systems are used to recommend relevant items to a user, and have been applied to several types of applications. In this paper we explore the effectiveness of a nonpersonalized recommenderExpand
Serendipity and Locality for Audio Recommendation
TLDR
This dissertation describes a novel model for serendipitous audio recommendation called SyLAR (Serendipity and Locality for Audio Recommendation), that goes beyond improving accuracy based on the user preferences and exploits the prevailing spatial contexts of the audio recommendation. Expand
The Filter Bubble in Social Media Communication: How Users Evaluate Personalized Information in the Facebook Newsfeed
TLDR
Light is shed on the filter bubble focusing on users’ perception and reaction as well as the education level as the interaction between relevance and intensity of Facebook usage have a significant influence on thefilter bubble perception. Expand
