On Analyzing Estimation Errors due to Constrained Connections in Online Review Systems

Abstract

In this work, we study how constrained connections can cause estimation errors in online review systems. Constrained connection is the phenomenon that a reviewer can only review a subset of products/services due to reviewer’s narrow range of interests or limited attention capacity. We find that reviewers’ constrained connections will cause poor inference performance, both from the measurements of estimation accuracy and Bayesian Cramér Rao lower bound.
