The overwhelming supply of online information on the Web makes finding better ways to separate important information from the noisy data ever more important. Recommender systems may help users deal with the information overloading issue, yet their performance appears to have stalled in currently available approaches. In this study, the authors propose and examine a novel user profiling approach that uses collaborative tagging information to enhance recommendation performance. They evaluate the…

A Heuristic Approach for Ranking Items Based on Inputs from Multiple Experts
The authors' key finding is that the quality of the solution is sensitive to (a) the number of judges available to rank, (b) how the items are assigned to judges, and (c) how consistent/inconsistent the judges are.
Impact of Retailer Generated Online Content on the Perceived Helpfulness of Product Reviews
The results indicate that retailer generated content cannot replace the utility of the review but can make a significant contribution towards satisfying the consumers need for information and help.

In safeguarding the resource for its enjoyment by future generations it is worth understanding, even at this stage, youth perceptions in the light that they will be the leaders of tomorrow and the core of society.


Improved recommendation based on collaborative tagging behaviors
A new collaborative filtering approach TBCF (Tag-based Collaborative Filtering) based on the semantic distance among tags assigned by different users to improve the effectiveness of neighbor selection, which has significant improvement against the traditional cosine-based recommendation method while leveraging user input not explicitly targeting the recommendation system.
Collaborative filtering in social tagging systems based on joint item-tag recommendations
This work proposes a comprehensive information structure to capture all types of co-occurrence information in the tagging data and proposes a unified user profiling scheme to make full use of all available information in social tagging systems.
Using viewing time to infer user preference in recommender systems
The idea that viewing time is an indicator of preference for attributes of items, and a recommendation system based on this idea is developed and evaluated, and empirical evidence that the system makes useful recommendations is presented.
Towards more confident recommendations: Improving recommender systems using filtering approach based on rating variance
This paper proposes several new approaches to improve the accuracy of recommender systems by using rating variance to gauge the confidence of recommendations, and empirically demonstrates how these approaches work with various recommendation techniques.

This paper surveys the landscape of actual and possible hybrid recommenders, and introduces a novel hybrid, EntreeC, a system that combines knowledge-based recommendation and collaborative filtering to recommend restaurants, and shows that semantic ratings obtained from the knowledge- based part of the system enhance the effectiveness of collaborative filtering.
Item-based collaborative filtering recommendation algorithms
This paper analyzes item-based collaborative ltering techniques and suggests that item- based algorithms provide dramatically better performance than user-based algorithms, while at the same time providing better quality than the best available userbased algorithms.
Personalized recommendation in social tagging systems using hierarchical clustering
This work presents a personalization algorithm for recommendation in folksonomies which relies on hierarchical tag clusters and presents extensive experimental results on two real world dataset, suggesting that guysonomies encompassing only one topic domain, rather than many topics, present an easier target for recommendation.
Tag-aware recommender systems by fusion of collaborative filtering algorithms
A generic method is proposed that allows tags to be incorporated to standard CF algorithms, by reducing the three-dimensional correlations to three two- dimensional correlations and then applying a fusion method to re-associate these correlations.
Content-boosted collaborative filtering for improved recommendations
This paper presents an elegant and effective framework for combining content and collaboration, which uses a content-based predictor to enhance existing user data, and then provides personalized suggestions through collaborative filtering.
Content-based recommendation in social tagging systems
Various content-based recommendation models that make use of user and item profiles defined in terms of weighted lists of social tags, adaptations of the Vector Space and Okapi BM25 information retrieval models are presented.
