PAWS Meeting 12-07-07

RecSys'07 Overview
RF gave An overview of the RecSys'07 conference. The sessions were as follows:
  • Privacy and Trust
  • Collaborative Filtering
  • Learning
  • User Issues
  • Short Papers (poster format)
  • Indutry Panels
As part of the overview RF summarized two papers. Group members were often initiating interaction with RF due to a mix of confusion and interest in the presentation content. The papers chosen were:
  • A Recursive Prediction Algorithm for Collaborative Filtering Recommender Systems
  • Incorporating user control into recommender systems based on Naive Bayesian classification
Kudos to RF for good presentation!

For more details refer to the slides.
