Scalable Dynamic User Preferences for Recommender Systems through the Use of the Well-Founded Semantics

Manoela Ilic, João Leite, Martin Slota
2008 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
ERASP is an add-on to existing recommender systems which uses dynamic logic programming -an extension of answer set programming -as a means for users to specify and update their models and preferences,  ...  While being an excellent solution in recommender systems limited to a few thousand products, ERASP does not scale well beyond that point.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like thank Paulo Lopes for providing dedicated hardware for running the benchmark tests, and for his reliable technical support and advice.  ...

2012 Forest Ecology and Management  
Previous data and publications from the Stoddard Fire Plots supported a saturation model of fire frequency effects.  ...  According to this model, vascular plant species richness increases along with fire frequency but only up to a threshold determined by woody overstory competition.  ...  Acknowledgements Funding for this research was provided by a Tall Timbers Beadel Fellowship and through the Tall Timbers Wildlife Research Endowment.  ...

Greenhouse gas offsets: A case study in the Sierra Gorda biosphere reserve, Mexico [article]

Maureen Debora Hill, University Of Calgary, University Of Calgary, Dixon A. R. Thompson, Michael S. Quinn
Feasibility studies on the potentiaI for the Reserve as a CDM carbon sequestration project have already begun.  ...  Key recommendations include: Parties to the Kyoto Protocol must ensure inclusion of land-use change and forestry projects under the CDM, and must ensure the goals of the CDM are more inclusive of host  ...  Managing forests purely for carbon sets a dangerous precedent.  ...
