Web Folksonomy 2.0

Elly Liang will talk on "User profiling based on folksonomy information in Web 2.0 for personalized recommender systems" at IR and Friends, in the CSIRO ICT Centre Seminar Room, 4pm, Monday 19 March 2012, CIST Building, at the ANU in Canberra.
"This thesis proposed novel approaches to use the emerging user information in Web 2.0 to help users solve the information overload issue. The user created content description and classification information-Folksonomy was used to find users' interests. Based on users' interest profiles, personalized recommendations can be generated for each user.
This thesis contributes to effectively use the wisdom of crowds to provide more accurate user profiling and recommendation approaches."
