  • Title: Improved Recommendation of Photo-Taking Locations using Virtual Ratings - Authors: Mesut KAYA, Derek Bridge - Abstract: We consider the task of collaborative recommendation of photo-taking locations. We use datasets of geotagged pho- tos. We map their locations to a location grid using a geo- hashing algorithm, resulting in a user × location implicit feedback matrix.

  • Sorina's Abstract: The popular matching problem involves finding a matching M between applicants and posts such that there exists no matching M’ where more applicants prefer M’ to M.We propose the first constraint programming approach to solve this problem. Then we tackle the more general case where additional copies of posts can be made in order to find a popular matching.

  • Principal Components Analysis (PCA) is widely used in dimensionality reduction because it extracts a small number of orthonormal vectors that explain most of the variation in a dataset. Conventional PCA is sensitive to outliers because it is based on the L2-norm, so to improve robustness several algorithms based on the L1-norm have been introduced in the literature.

  • The Linked Open Data (LOD) initiative has been quite successful in terms of publishing and interlinking data on the Web. On top of the huge amount of interconnected data, measuring relatedness between resources and identifying their relatedness could be used for various applications such as LOD-enabled recommender systems.
