A Group Recommendation System for Movies based on MAS

2016 Advances in Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence Journal  
To this end, we have developed a multi-agent approach called PUMAS-GR that relies on negotiation techniques to improve group recommendations.  ...  Although several group recommendation techniques exist, the generation of items that satisfy all group members in an even way still remains a challenge.  ...  Our work differs from the ones of Garcia that they negotiate user preferences while we negotiate recommendations. in Conclusions PUMAS-GR is a MAS approach for group recommendation based on negotiation  ...

A Recommendation System for Cloud Services Selection Based on Intelligent Agents

Abid Mahmood, Umar Shoaib, M. Shahzad Sarfraz
2018 Indian Journal of Science and Technology  
Objectives: To provide a recommendation system for cloud services selection based on intelligent agents.  ...  But we implement the multi-agent system (MAS) approach where one agent is liable to intermingle with the client for unambiguous service.  ...  Based on collected feedback the framework is able to recommend a service based on the computed trust of a service. 18 Due to autonomous and flexible nature, MAS is the most appropriate approach for user  ...

A negotiation framework for heterogeneous group recommendation

Inma Garcia, Laura Sebastia
2014 Expert systems with applications  
In this context, we have opted for building a multi-agent system, where an agent acts on behalf of one group member.  ...  Over the last years, some remarkable recommender systems for group of users have been developed.  ...  Additionally, we are working on incorporating techniques based on trust during the negotiation process, so that proposals are accepted or rejected depending on the UserAgent that proposed them.  ...

2007 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
Agents interact with other agents through negotiation since they are autonomous entities. Negotiation is a technique for reaching mutually beneficial agreement through communication among agents.  ...  The communication protocol detects when communication is ineffective, and applies techniques for ontology exchange to build a shared ontology of minimal size.  ...  In parallel, an alternative approach to item recommendation was proposed, this one based on the offering of items based on other users' opinion, that is, the user receives an item recommendation based  ...
