  • Pain to control Dislikes and distrusted because we don’t know what they listen to, and who they talk to, and what they do with that data.
  • Publishing web (publishing) – blogging, tweeting, updating their status, etc. Sharing web (sharing) – want others to see what we publish, which groups we’re in, what we like and dislike, our opinion on things, what we’ve been up to, places we’re visitingSocial networks (networking) – becoming part of online communities, of friends, colleagues, or complete strangers And as you know, the social web is increasingly becoming the new renewable energy of RS – it’s cheap, exists in abundance all around us, but largely untamed.Spyware is not the answer, where you develop apps that sit inside computers to monitor and analyze what we browse. Much research went into that direction. Problem is that people lose control on when and what to share and what not to share. Of course they could always switch off/on the spyware but it’s a headache and people worry that they might forget, or don’t trust the tool to behave like it should.
  • Disconnection of knowledge and social networkWant the SNS to talk to each other so they can give me a better serviceOvertime, the cumulative frequencies of the tags you use canbe represented with a tag-cloud. This gives a visual snapshot of the terms that you use most frequently.When we began this work, the first thing we did was develop a toolFor viewing tag clouds from multiple domains. We noticed thatmany tags represented concepts that could be considered Interests of the users.Hence, the motivation for our work is to exploit this tagging
  • Facebook is heading the move towards globalising how you learn about what your users like, by allowing them to tell you what they like wherever they are whenever they like. Problem – you don’t know who they will sell this info to, info locked within Facebook
  • What u like: from browsing, purchasingWhom u know  what they like  what you might like
  • The DBpedia knowledge base currently describes more than 3.4 million things, out of which 1.5 million are classified in a consistent Ontology, including 312,000 persons, 413,000 places, 94,000 music albums, 49,000 films, 15,000 video games, 140,000 organizations, 146,000 species and 4,600 diseases. The DBpedia data set features labels and abstracts for these 3.2 million things in up to 92 different languages; 841,000 links to images and 5,081,000 links to external web pages; 9,393,000 external links into other RDF datasets, 565,000 Wikipedia categories, and 75,000 YAGO categories. The DBpedia knowledge base altogether consists of over 1 billion pieces of information (RDF triples) out of which 257 million were extracted from the English edition of Wikipedia and 766 million were extracted from other language editions
  • Sense here refers to adding meaning to tags, structure, modeling users
  • Disambiguation based on similarity of term vectors of Dbpedia pages and tag terms based on their frequency.

    • 1. Interlinking semantics, web2.0, and the real-world
      Knowledge Media institute, OU
      APRESW Workshop, Extended Semantic Web Conference, Crete, 2010
    • 2. Learning about YOU!
      Sites learn about what you like from your browsing/purchasing history
      Cold start problem
      New user
      New site
      New product, product range
      Sparse knowledge
      Limited to interactions within the site
      Can’t learn if you are using other sites
      No to Spyware!
      Tools that sit inside computers and monitor browsing behaviour and content
      Much research went into that direction for building RSs
      Pain to control what they should/shouldn’t access and when
    • 3. New info sources for recommendation systems
      Micro publishing
      updating status
      • Sharing
      • 4. wish for others to see what we publish
      • 5. know which groups we are in
      • 6. what we like
      • 7. where we’re going
      • Online networking
      • 8. Becoming part of an online community
      • 9. Connecting with friends, colleagues, family
      • 10. Participating in groups and discussions
    • Can you tell what my interests are?
    • 11. Facebook’s Open Graph
      Collects “like” information from anywhere about anything!
      “Based on the structured data you provide via the Open Graph protocol, your pages show up richly across Facebook: in user profiles, within search results and in News Feed.”
    • 12. Personal interests and the social web
    • 13. What about the semantics?
    • 14. Un-Semantic Recommender Systems
      Collaborative filtering is scalable, relatively cheap, and requires little background knowledge
      But can semantics help improve recommendation accuracy? Could it be cost effective?
    • 15. Semantics from Linked Open Data Cloud
      millions of objects
      Billions of triples
    • 16. DBpedia – a Linked Data hub
      Status: No Relation found

      YES … BUT!!
    • 18. Challenges
      Tag ambiguity, misspellings, redundancy
      No semantic structure
      Distributed and disintegrated personal tag clouds

      Live Social Semantics platform aims at solving these problems!
