Summer project at Telefonica: Expert-based recommendation system

Jae-wook introduced his project at Telefonica summer internship. The project is called Wisdom of the Few, which is an expert-based recommendation system. The original idea of the expert-recommendation was presented at SIGIR 2009. This time the study was extended aiming at the following objectives.
  • Re-examine the idea using the music dataset collected from Metacritic.
  • Build a client-based UM and recommendation, so that it can solve several issues such as privacy and scalability.
  • Make a user interface using Adobe AIR, which can be ported to different platform.
We will do the evaluation soon, in the winter 2009.
