Personalization in Digital Libraries: An Intelligent Service based on Semantic User Profiles

  title={Personalization in Digital Libraries: An Intelligent Service based on Semantic User Profiles},
  author={Giovanni Semeraro and Pasquale Lops and Marco Degemmis and Pierpaolo Basile and Anna Lisa Gentile},
Suppose you registered to a large scientific congress and. [] Key Method Content-based recommenders analyze documents previously rated by a target user, and build a profile exploited to recommend new interesting documents. One of the main limitations of traditional keyword-based approaches is that they are unable to capture the semantics of the user interests, due to the natural language ambiguity.

Figures and Tables from this paper



Improving User Modelling with Content-Based Techniques

A content-based document representation is proposed as a starting point to build a model of the user's interests, which is language independent, allowing navigation in multilingual sites.

Content-based book recommending using learning for text categorization

This work describes a content-based book recommending system that utilizes information extraction and a machine-learning algorithm for text categorization and shows initial experimental results demonstrate that this approach can produce accurate recommendations.

Learning and Revising User Profiles: The Identification of Interesting Web Sites

The use of a naive Bayesian classifier is described, and it is demonstrated that it can incrementally learn profiles from user feedback on the interestingness of Web sites and may easily be extended to revise user provided profiles.

A content-collaborative recommender that exploits WordNet-based user profiles for neighborhood formation

This work proposes a new content-collaborative hybrid recommender which computes similarities between users relying on their content-based profiles, in which user preferences are stored, instead of comparing their rating styles.

Referral Web: combining social networks and collaborative filtering

Part of the success of social networks can be attributed to the “six degrees of separation’’ phenomena that means the distance between any two individuals in terms of direct personal relationships is

A new measure of system performance is suggested based on the distance between user ranking and system ranking that only uses the relative order of documents and therefore confirms to the valid use of an ordinal scale measuring relevance.

OntoSeek: content-based access to the Web

The OntoSeek system adopts a language of limited expressiveness for content representation and uses a large ontology based on WordNet for content matching to increase both recall and precision of content based retrieval.

Machine learning in automated text categorization

This survey discusses the main approaches to text categorization that fall within the machine learning paradigm and discusses in detail issues pertaining to three different problems, namely, document representation, classifier construction, and classifier evaluation.

Trust-aware Decentralized Recommender Systems: PhD research proposal

This PhD thesis proposes a solution about exploiting of trust into RSs, analyzes current RS weaknesses and shows how use of trust can overcome them.

Boosting for Text Classification with Semantic Features

This paper proposes an enhancement of the classical document representation through concepts extracted from background knowledge through Boosting, a successful machine learning technique used for classification.
