CiteUlike Recommender September 28, 2009

Posted by Andre Vellino in Collaborative filtering, Recommender, Recommender service.

cite-u-likeThe recommender system that Toine Bogers experimented on a few years ago with CiteUlike data and which is the subject of a very interesting poster given at Recomender Systems 2008 is now on-line at CiteUlike.

Paradoxically, my personal CiteUlike library of (only) 22 articles (mostly on recommender systems) isn’t sufficient to generate any recommendations. Probably there aren’t enough people who have similar collections.

The “20 articles” need to fit certain criteria:


Specifically, we need to have collected the metadata ourselves rather then manually entered or uploaded. Our article matching is derived from the URL so manually entered has not much to go on. (I’m over simplifying here.)

For the record, our recommender system isn’t one that Toine discussed in that poster.

Thanks for that clarification, Fergus.
