Recommending POIs for Tourists by User Behavior Modeling and Pseudo-Rating

  title={Recommending POIs for Tourists by User Behavior Modeling and Pseudo-Rating},
  author={Kun Yi and Ryujiro Yamagishi and Taishan Li and Zhengyang Bai and Qiang Ma},
POI recommendation is a key task in tourism information systems. However, in contrast to conventional point of interest (POI) recommender systems, the available data is extremely sparse; most tourist visit a few sightseeing spots once and most of these spots have no check-in data from new tourists. Most conventional systems rank sightseeing spots based on their popularity, reputations, and category-based similarities with users’ preferences. They do not clarify what users can experience in… 



Personalized Tour Recommendation Based on User Interests and Points of Interest Visit Durations

This work proposes an algorithm called PERSTOUR for recommending personalized tours using POI popularity and user interest preferences, which are automatically derived from real-life travel sequences based on geotagged photos.

Adapting to User Interest Drift for POI Recommendation

This paper proposes a latent class probabilistic generative model Spatial-Temporal LDA (ST-LDA) to learn region-dependent personal interests according to the contents of their checked-in POIs at each region, and designs an effective attribute pruning algorithm to overcome the curse of dimensionality and support fast online recommendation for large-scale POI data.

LGLMF: Local Geographical based Logistic Matrix Factorization Model for POI Recommendation

An effective geographical model is proposed by considering the user's main region of activity and the relevance of each location within that region and is fused into the Logistic Matrix Factorization to improve the accuracy of POI recommendation.

A City Adaptive Clustering Framework for Discovering POIs with Different Granularities

This paper proposes a city adaptive clustering framework for discovering POIs with different granularities that takes advantage of two clustering algorithms and is adaptive to different cities.

LCARS: a location-content-aware recommender system

LCARS is proposed, a location-content-aware recommender system that offers a particular user a set of venues or events by giving consideration to both personal interest and local preference, and a scalable query processing technique is developed by extending the classic Threshold Algorithm.

Personalized Context-Aware Point of Interest Recommendation

This article proposes a probabilistic model to find the mapping between user-annotated tags and locations’ taste keywords and investigates four approaches to use the proposed mapping for addressing the data sparsity problem.

Towards Next Generation Touring: Personalized Group Tours

This work introduces the novel problem of group tour recommendation (GROUPTOURREC), which involves many challenges: forming tour groups whose members have similar interests; recommending Points-of-Interests (POI) that form the tour itinerary and cater for the group's interests; and assigning guides to lead these tours.

Geo-SAGE: A Geographical Sparse Additive Generative Model for Spatial Item Recommendation

Geo-SAGE considers both user personal interests and the preference of the crowd in the target region, by exploiting both the co-occurrence pattern of spatial items and the content of spatialItems, and exploits the geographical correlation by smoothing the crowd's preferences over a well-designed spatial index structure called spatial pyramid.

Location recommendation for out-of-town users in location-based social networks

This paper proposes a collaborative recommendation framework, called User Preference, Proximity and Social-Based Collaborative Filtering} (UPS-CF), to make location recommendation for mobile users in LBSNs and finds that preference derived from similar users is important for in-town users while social influence becomes more important for out-of- town users.

The Unfairness of Popularity Bias in Recommendation

The experimental results on a movie dataset show that in many recommendation algorithms the recommendations the users get are extremely concentrated on popular items even if a user is interested in long-tail and non-popular items showing an extreme bias disparity.
