    • Overview research topics 11
    • Recommender systems 12
    • User-based CF A B C
    • A B C Item-based CF
    • similarity measures ¤  Cosine similarity ¤  Pearson correlation ¤  Tanimoto or extended Jaccard coefficient
    • similarity measures 16 MAE of item-based collaborative filtering based on different similarity metrics
    • algorithms MAE of user-based, item-based and slope-one collaborative filtering
    • data dimensions
    • Challenges ¤  context acquisition ¤  standardized representation of contextual data ¤  evaluation ¤  user interfaces
    • Overview research topics 22
    • Problem statement ¤  Complexity prevents users from comprehending results ¤  Trust issues when recommendations fail ¤  Aggravated with contextual recommendation ¤  The black box nature of RS prevents users from providing feedback ¤  Algorithms typically hard-wired in the system code ¤  generate a list of top-N recommendations ¤  little research has been done to study more flexible approaches 23

    • effectiveness How frequently a specific combination type produced a display that was used to bookmark at least one interesting item Dimensions of relevance are not equal The more aspects of relevance are used, the more effective it is Especially effective are fusions across relevance dimensions 29
