Title of the thesis:
Towards Social-based User Modeling and Personalization
Summary:This thesis is focused on user modeling for open corpus web-based systems. We introduce two methods falling within the scope of data collection stage of the user modeling process: a method for comprehensive logging of user activity on the Web with preserved semantics and a method for capturing logs of "wild" Web surfing. Next, we describe methods related to actual user model creation: a method for user model inference based on rules expressing navigational patterns and a method for term-based open corpus user modeling, applicable for capturing user's interest on the "wild" Web. We proposed also a method for finding relations between terms based on folksonomies, which supports our term-based user modeling approach. The proposed methods were evaluated by means of software tools within research projects aimed at intelligent information presentation on the Web.
Key words:
user characteristic, adaptive web-based systems, social web, open information space, user model
