Evaluating user modelling systems is a complex process and yet there currently exists no standard evaluation methodology. The interactive user evaluation paradigm cannot easily be applied since it does not allow users to follow their personal information need over a long time period. In this paper, we suggest a novel evaluation methodology for long-term user modelling which is based on user simulation. We first create individual ground truth data which we then use to simulate users interacting… CONTINUE READING
