Incremental critiquing

James Reilly, Kevin McCarthy, Lorraine McGinty, Barry Smyth
2005 Knowledge-Based Systems  
Critiquing is a common form of user feedback, where users provide limited feedback at the feature-level by constraining a feature's value-space.  ...  For example, a user may request a cheaper product, thus critiquing the price feature.  ...  Methodology Ideally we would like to have carried out an online evaluation with live-users, but unfortunately this was not possible.  ...

Hybrid critiquing-based recommender systems

Li Chen, Pearl Pu

Quality Enhancement Based on Reinforcement Learning and Feature Weighting for a Critiquing-Based Recommender [chapter]

Maria Salamó, Sergio Escalera, Petia Radeva
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Critiquing is a common form of feedback and incremental critiquing-based recommender system has shown its efficiency to personalize products based primarily on a quality measure.  ...  In this paper, we describe new compatibility strategies whose basis is on reinforcement learning and a new feature weighting technique which is based on the user's history of critiques.  ...  We could also use incremental dynamic updates of α depending of our problem domain (i.e., we could think that initial critiques of the user should have less influence that last critiques since the user  ...

On the Evolution of Critiquing Recommenders [chapter]

Lorraine McGinty, James Reilly
2010 Recommender Systems Handbook  
Specifically, we present a deliberately non-technical overview of the critiquing research which has been covered in recent years.  ...  Over the past decade a significant amount of recommender systems research has demonstrated the benefits of conversational architectures that employ critique-based interfacing (e.g., Show me more like item  ...  In the ideal case, live usability studies and performance evaluations should be ultimately carried with real users when evaluating the performance (both subjective and objective) of critiquebase recommenders  ...

Explaining Compound Critiques

James Reilly, Kevin Mccarthy, Lorraine Mcginty, Barry Smyth
2005 Artificial Intelligence Review  
Dynamic critiquing is a novel extension of this approach, where users are presented with compound critiques that reflect the product options that are available in a given cycle of a recommendation session  ...  Critique-based navigation, where a user applies a directional critique to a specific feature of a presented recommendation, is often used to guide users through such complex product spaces.  ...  To cater for this we have recently developed and evaluated an extended approach to dynamic critiquing called incremental critiquing which successfully solves this problem, and which has been shown to offer  ...

Experiments on the preference-based organization interface in recommender systems

Li Chen, Pearl Pu
2010 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
A simulation setup is first presented, that identified Pref-ORG's significantly higher algorithm accuracy in predicting critiques and choices that users should intend to make, followed by a realuser evaluation  ...  The critique is a form of feedback ("I would like something cheaper than this one") that users can provide to the currently displayed product, with which the system may better predict what the user truly  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are grateful to all participants of our user study for their patience and time.  ...

User-Involved Preference Elicitation for Product Search and Recommender Systems

Pearl Pu, Li Chen
2008 The AI Magazine  
In this article, we provide some analyses of common areas of design pitfalls and derive a set of design guidelines that assist the user in avoiding these problems in three important areas: user preference  ...  We address user system interaction issues in product search and recommender systems: how to help users select the most preferential item from a large collection of alternatives.  ...  Other tools that work in a similar way are ATA (Linden, Hanks, and Lesh 1997) , ExpertClerk (Shimazu 2001) , the Adaptive Place Advisor (Goker and Thompson 2000) , and the incremental dynamic-critiquing  ...

Interactive multi-party critiquing for group recommendation

Francesca Guzzi, Francesco Ricci, Robin Burke
2011 Proceedings of the fifth ACM conference on Recommender systems - RecSys '11  
We describe a mobile application implementing the proposed approach and its evaluation in a live user experiment.  ...  We propose to use a critiquing RS that has been shown to be effective in single-user recommendation.  ...  Because the process of critiquing requires users to incrementally articulate their preferences, it is well-suited to support this type of process.  ...
