SemTree: ontology-based decision tree algorithm for recommender systems


Bouza, A; Reif, G; Bernstein, A; Gall, H (2008). SemTree: ontology-based decision tree algorithm for recommender systems. In: International Semantic Web Conference, Karlsruhe, Germany, 26 October 2008 - 30 October 2008.

Abstract

Recommender systems play an important role in supporting people when choosing items from an overwhelming huge number of choices. So far, no recommender system makes use of domain knowledge. We are modeling user preferences with a machine learning approach to recommend people items by predicting the item ratings. Specifically, we propose SemTree, an ontology-based decision tree learner, that uses a reasoner and an ontology to semantically generalize item features to improve the effectiveness of the decision tree built. We show that SemTree outperforms comparable approaches in recommending more accurate recommendations considering domain knowledge.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
