Recommendations without user preferences: a natural language processing approach
M. Fleischman, und E. Hovy. IUI '03: Proceedings of the 8th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces, Seite 242--244. New York, NY, USA, ACM, (2003)
We examine the problems with automated recommendation systems when information about user preferences is limited. We equate the problem to one of content similarity measurement and apply techniques from Natural Language Processing to the domain of movie recommendation. We describe two algorithms, a naïve word-space approach and a more sophisticated approach using topic signatures, and evaluate their performance compared to baseline, gold standard, and commercial systems.
