Palve Professor (HOD) M.E-IInd Department of Computer Science &Engineering G.H.R I E M Jalgaon ABSTRACT The number of online journals has increased in recent years owning to the increasing popularity of the Internet. It is important to offer user tools that facilitate faster and more accurate access to articles of interest in digital newspapers. E-Newspaper Personalization is a very active research field that personalize relevant news to users according to profiles of their visits. News Personalization systems offer recommendations, usually based on content similarity to previous visits by the user that is the content based approach or on news items visited by similar users that is collaborative filtering. Classifier is used for the text classification purpose. It can operate even in fairly large feature sets as the goal is to measure the margin of separation of the data rather than matches on features. Recommender approach that shows ranked news to users, considering previous visits, the terms contained in articles and the category they are assigned to. KEYWORDS: Personalization, Content-based Approach, Classifier tf-idf. I. INTRODUCTION The Personalization of newspapers involves both social and technical issues. In social terms, the Personalization of newspapers raises some interesting issues. Readers may be tempted to restrict to reading only personally interesting articles, if their newspaper tried to show them only the articles that they are likely be interested in. However, from the readers’ point of view, newspapers are not only means to read articles they are interested in but also are means to find information which they are not explicitly looking for. In regular newspapers, people tend to regard an article as important if it is located at an important location on the page or allocated more space than other articles. They may read the article not because it is interesting, but because it seems to be important. Eventually, they may be able to broaden their interests by reading such articles. A purely personalized newspaper would lack this important feature. In technical terms, the manner in which the user’s interest is measured, and the strategy used to personalize the presentation are important.

  2. 2. International Journal of Computer Engineering and Technology (IJCET), ISSN 0976- 6367(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6375(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME 129 The growing number of online newspapers in last years has presented a rich area which can immensely profit from personalized filtering approaches. Online news reading has become very popular as the Internet provides access to news from millions of sources all over the world. People typically read news to know and understand what happened, is happening and will happen in a town, region, country or the world. Thus, it is a key challenge for news websites to help users find, fast and accurately, those news which are of interest for the online readers. In recent years, research on news filtering in daily newspapers and other media has increased notably and is very active for the design and application of new Personalization techniques on the Internet. Online newspapers present breaking news on their websites in real time. By applying recommendation techniques, users can obtain personalized and automatic notifications. News recommender systems offer recommendations, usually based on content similarity to previous visits by the user (content based approaches) or on news items visited by similar users (collaborative filtering). Nevertheless, it has two characteristics that distinguish it from other recommendation tasks. On the one hand, and related to user ratings, very few users accept invitations to explicitly evaluate the information items they read (for instance, using a numerical scale). II. PROBLEM STATEMENT The number of news related to various categories such as sports, computer, Hollywood, music, politics can be obtained through the internet. Each user can see these types of news using the internet. But as per we see all types of news i.e. news related to various types of categories get displayed on the webpage. If the user is interested in news related to politics then he has to go at that headline and then he can see that news by clicking at that news. It is much time consuming. If it is possible to display news for user as per his choice then it will be a better option. So the option is to develop E-Newspaper Personalization System. Using this system it is possible to personalize the news as per user’s choice. Personalization is nothing but providing news i.e. personalizing news to user as per his choice. This system provides news to the user which are having the subscription. As per they are subscribed user they will also provide the information regarding their interest in news category i.e. which type of news they will prefer. As per having the user information as well as choice of user that which type of news he want, using system the information i.e. the news will be displayed in front of him as per his choice. As well as the classification will be made based on news much preferred by the users. Due to this the news of user’s choice get displayed in front of user as well as he doesn’t need to search for his news and go through the many headlines. Also there is no wastage of time for searching of news. III. LITERATURE SURVEY Content-Based Recommenders In content-based approaches to news recommending, articles are recommended according to a comparison between their contents and the user profiles. The user profiles contain information about the users' content-based preferences. Both of these components have data-structures which are created using features extracted from text. A weighting scheme is often used to assign high weights to the most discriminating features/preferences, and low weights to the less informative ones. Traditional Content-Based Approaches Traditional content-based approaches are purely content based without any semantics. Concepts get weights assigned that are obtained without semantic knowledge of underlying relations

User interests are often measured with machine learning algorithms, like Nearest Neighbour or Naive Bayes. In the traditional content-based approaches we review, articles are processed with TF-IDF by taking all terms (but the stop words) into account. The article is stored in a weighted vector of terms, and compared with a user profile by using a similarity measure. • News Dude is a personal news recommending agent that uses TF-IDF in combination with the Nearest Neighbour algorithm and uses the full text of an article. News Dude first considers the short-term interests to look for similar items and if this does not return satisfiable results, long- term interests are considered. • The next related work is Daily Learner [1]. This is an adaptive news service which allows users to personalize the news to their own taste. First a user gives his preferences of what type of news he is interested in. Based on this user profile, the system then delivers those stories that best match this user's interests. A new article is processed with TF-IDF, and represented as a vector. Then this article is compared with the user profile (also a vector with TF-IDF weights), using cosine similarity. Finally, the user explicitly provides feedback using four ratings (interesting, not interesting, more information, already known). Short-term interests are determined by analyzing the N most recently rated stories, based on the Nearest Neighbor Algorithm. Long term interests are modeled with the Naive Bayes Classifier. • Your News [3] is another example of a content-based news recommendation system. It is a personalized news system, which intends to increase the transparency of adapted news delivery. It allows the user to view and edit his interest profile. To support this, Your News highlights the key terms in news items. The news items are represented as weighted vectors of terms. The weight of each term is calculated using TF-IDF. CF-IDF does not consider the full text, but only the concepts that exist in the knowledge base. With the semantic knowledge about the concepts it is possible to consider more than just the text at hand. The strength of the CF-IDF algorithm depends on the quality of the knowledge base. Semantic Content-Based Approaches Semantic content-based approaches aim to recommend news items by combining content- based techniques with domain semantics. Weights for concepts take into account the semantic knowledge about these concepts. Each of the reviewed recommenders has a different approach of applying the semantic knowledge provided by the ontology. The CF-IDF recommender only records the concepts to calculate weights. • The approach proposed in [4], which was created in the same environment as our CF-IDF approach, calculates a similarity based on not only the concepts themselves but also based on the directly and indirectly related concepts, which are described in an ontology. • Onto Seek [1] is a content-based approach which aims to retrieve information from online yellow pages and product catalogs. It matches content with the help of the large Sensus ontology, which comprises a simple taxonomic structure of approximately 70,000 nodes. OntoSeek does not employ a user profile. Instead, OntoSeek uses lexical conceptual graphs to represent queries and resource descriptions, i.e., a tree structure where nodes are nouns from the descriptions and arcs are concepts inferred by the corresponding nouns. The ontology is used for classifying items, and to match an item with a query. The user is required to disambiguate the meaning of his queries. This process is performed by the user interface that tries to identify the concept provided and asks the user to choose between potential solutions.

International Journal of Computer Engineering and Technology (IJCET), ISSN 0976- 6367(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6375(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME 131 • The authors of [9] propose News@hand, a news-based recommendation system which uses Semantic Web technologies to describe and relate news items and user preferences in order to recommend items to a user. To represent news contents and user preferences the authors make use of concepts which appear in a set of domain ontologies. News@hand looks very similar to the Hermes News Personalization framework. Both approaches classify news items to gain key concepts, and work with a domain ontology. For recommending, News@hand makes use of 3 different semantic methods for recommendations: content-based, collaborative filtering, and a hybrid approach. The latter two are not discussed since this paper focuses primarily on content based approaches. The semantic content-based recommendation approach employs a certain similarity measure that utilizes the semantic preferences (weighted concepts gained by observing and profiling user behaviour) of the user and the semantic annotations (the key concepts weighted by the classification) of an item. CF-IDF is mainly created to proof that a term-based recommender can be significantly improved with the help of the semantic annotations, whereas the content-based approach in News@hand is mainly used for comparison with the hybrid recommendation approach. IV. PROPOSED ALGORITHM/ TECHNIQUE Text categorization is the process of sorting textdocuments into one or more predefined categories orclasses of similar documents. Differences in the results ofsuch categorization arise from the feature set chosen tobase the association of a given document with a givencategory. Algorithm The personalization system personalise the news to the user as per his choice. This personalization system requires two steps to complete this personalization of news to user. The steps are as below: • Database Preparation • Personalisation of news to the user The database preparation is the classification of news from news database into corresponding categories. The news database consists of news from different categories and that news are classified into corresponding category using VSM classifier. VSM i.e. Vector Space Model is used for news classification purpose. VSM is a two-class supervised learning technique, and Matlab does just that. For multi-classes we might want to apply successively 2-classes learning processes. Vector Space Model algorithm is the most widely used kernel learning algorithm. Vector Space Model has gained prominence in the field of pattern recognition and machine learning. The steps in database preparation using VSM are as below: 1) For each category repeat following steps: • Create one dictionary for each category. • Store all words in each news in corresponding dictionary of category to which it is related. 2) VSMclass is used to train VSM classifier that is used for news classification. USAGE [xsup, w, b, pos, timeps, alpha, obj] = VSM class(x, y, c, lambda, kernel, kerneloption, verbose, span, alphainit) Vector Space Model is used for classification. This routine classify the training set with a support vector machine using quadratic programming algorithm. 3) VSM takes each news from news database.

International Journal of Computer Engineering and Technology (IJCET), ISSN 0976- 6367(Print), ISSN 0976 – 6375(Online) Volume 4, Issue 4, July-August (2013), © IAEME 132 4) Calculate the number of terms in news and check that each word in that news related to which category. 5) The category to which more number of words related is the category of that news. 6) Repeat 3) to 5) steps for each news. 7) VSMval is used for testing that the classification is done properly or not i.e. whether the expected output is equal to actual output or not.. VSMval USAGE [y, y1, y2]=VSMval(x, xsup, w, b, kernel, kerneloption, span, framematrix, vector, dual) VSMval computes the prediction of a Vector Space Model using the kernel function and its parameter for classification or regression. 8) The accuracy of the system regarding displaying news i.e. how accurately the system displays news for the user as per his choice is calculated as: Accuracy = [ Accuracy 100- (100*FP) / size ( Featest, 2 ) ] Where FP = sum (Exp_out& out) The steps for personalization of news to the user are as below: 1) Select user. 2) According to user selected the system retrieves the user profile which contains the categories of user’s choice. 3) System retrieves the news from classified news database as per given in user profile. 4) System Produces Personalized Newspaper. 5) System Presents the Personalized Newspaper to the User. The news are displayed for the user. In this way the news from news database are first of all classified into different categories using VSM classifier and then the news as per user choice is retrieved from corresponding category from classified news database and then the news is displayed as per user’s choice by the news personalization system. E-Newspaper Personalization System Fig. 4.1 e-Newspaper Personalization System The E-Newspaper Personalization System is having aim to develop a prototype system that can be viewed as a central newspapers provider. On one hand, it obtains news obtained from various providers; on the other hand, it distributes personalized newspapers to subscribed users on

In this section, we describe briefly the general architecture of the Newspaper Personalization system. Figure 4.1 presents the E-Newspaper Personalization System. The news are from different categories. Online news database has been taken which consist of news from different nine categories. The news are from month January 2013. The news are for categories cricket, football, education, environment, technical, business, automobile, hockey, Indian business. So first of all the news database is selected from database. As per user requires news of his choice. So, for this the user profile is given to the system. The profile provides the choice of the user. According to the user choice the news is taken from corresponding category and then displayed for the user. So, for displaying the news as per his choice the user profile is necessary. So this E-Newspaper Personalization system will provide the user news of his choice through this system. V. TEST PERFORMANCE EVALUATION FOR 20 NEWSGROUP DATASET (RESULT) The 20 Newsgroup Dataset is a new database consisting of news from 20 different categories. 20 Newsgroup dataset is provided with dictionaries which consist of maximum all the words related to each of 20 categories. The accuracy of 20 Newsgroup Dataset i.e. how accurately the news are classified using VSM is calculated by applying the 20 Newsgroup dataset to E-Newspaper Personalisation system. The accuracy table for 20 Newsgroup Dataset is as shown below in table 5.1. Name of Category Accuracy alt.atheism 99.3897 99.2562 99.2371 99.2562 comp.sys.mac.hardware 99.2752 99.2180 99.2562 99.2562 99.2371 99.2371 99.2371 sci.crypt 99.2562 sci.electronics 99.2371 99.2562 99.2371 soc.religion.christian 99.2371 talk.politics.guns 99.3134 talk.politics.mideast 99.2752 talk.politics.misc 99.4087 talk.religion.misc 99.5232 Table 5.1 Accuracy Table for 20 Newsgroup Dataset

The accuracy is calculated using Formula: Accuracy=[Accuracy 100- (100*FP)/size(feaTest,2)] Where, FP=sum(abs(Exp_Out'-out))/2; %FP=sum(Exp_Out & out) Accuracy is the degree of veracity while in some contexts precision may mean the degree of reproducibility. Accuracy is dependent on how data is collected, and is usually judged by comparing several measurements from the same or different sources. Accuracy is also used as a statistical measure of how well a binary classification test correctly identifies or excludes a condition. An accuracy of 100% means that the measured values are exactly the same as the given values. Accuracy is defined as the agreement between a measured quantity and the true value of that quantity. Every component that appears in the analog signal path affects system accuracy and performance. The overall system accuracy is given by the component with the worst accuracy. VI. APPLICATION • Today, people publish millions of messages per day on Twitter, which is the most popular microblogging service on the Web. Recent research shows that the majority of Twitter messages (tweets) are related to news and that the trending topics propagate quickly through the Twitter social network which allows for applications such as early warning systems. So far, most research initiatives focused on the analysis of structural properties of the Twitter network. The proposed work can be extended to how individual Twitter activities can be exploited to infer personal interests and generate semantic user profiles that can be re-used also by other applications than Twitter. • In contrast to other Social Web services like, which allows for the deduction of users’ musical tastes, or Flicker, which primarily provides information to infer users’ interests in locations or events, tweets are not restricted to a certain domain. Instead, Twitter users can discuss about any topic they are interested in or concerned with which makes it worthwhile to explore for user modeling. Furthermore, the real-time nature of information that people publish on Twitter poses new challenges and possibilities for user modelling. • In Media, the goal of a documentation department is to help journalists to find information in archived news in order to reuse it in a new article. To this end, these departments have to tag news every day, and the typical way to do that is by using a thesaurus: a set of items (word or phrases) used to classify things. VII. FUTURE SCOPE Finding newspaper articles coverage of events can be complicated. Different indexing and searching resources are needed depending on the date and the geographic location of the event and perspective desired. Public indexing of many newspapers is relatively recent phenomena, complicating matters further. More effort is needed to focus on these issues. To summarize, automatic E-Newspaper classification is an important problem nowadays. Here we propose an approach base on tf-idf to classify and distribute the E-Newspaper articles.
