RecSys ’07 August 4, 2007Posted by Andre Vellino in Collaborative filtering, Data Mining, Information retrieval, Recommender service.
The RecSys 2007 conference program (October 19-20, Minneapolis) looks fantastic! The keynote is by Krishna Bharat, who invented Google News. The research track has several papers on explanation and user-control, which is what’s most needed for advancing recommender system adoption, IMO.
There’s lots to look forward to and learn about. One thing from our “home and native land” (University of Saskatchewan, to be precise) that I didn’t know about is the KeepUp News / RSS recommender.
