Designing Explanations for Group Recommender Systems [article]

A. Felfernig and N. Tintarev and T.N.T. Trang and M. Stettinger
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we provide an overview of existing research related to explanations in recommender systems, and specifically discuss aspects relevant to group recommendation scenarios.  ...  Developers of recommender systems want to convince users to purchase specific items. Users should better understand how the recommender system works and why a specific item has been recommended.  ...  CRITIQUING-BASED RECOMMENDATION To assist users in constructing and refining preferences, critiquing-based recommender systems [19] determine recommendations based on the similarity between candidate  ...

Group Recommender Systems: Combining Individual Models [chapter]

Judith Masthoff
2010 Recommender Systems Handbook  
This chapter shows how a system can recommend to a group of users by aggregating information from individual user models and modelling the users affective state.  ...  It also shows how group recommendation techniques can be applied when recommending to individuals, in particular for solving the cold-start problem and dealing with multiple criteria.  ...  Users consider holiday packages, and critique their features (e.g., 'like the one shown but with a swimming pool'). Based on these critiques, the system recommends other holidays to them.  ...

Evaluating Complex Healthcare Systems: A Critique of Four Approaches

Heather Boon, Hugh MacPherson, Sue Fleishman, Sameline Grimsgaard, Mary Koithan, Arne Johan Norheim, Harald Walach
2007 Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine  
An international working group reviewed literature from interdisciplinary or interprofessional groups describing approaches to the evaluation of complex systems of healthcare.  ...  The following four key approaches were identified: a framework from the MRC (UK), whole systems research, whole medical systems research described by NCCAM (USA) and a model from NAFKAM (Norway).  ...  This perspective suggests that randomized controlled trials may be limited in their ability to adequately assess whole systems and thus recommends a mixed methods approach that includes a range of relevant  ...

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  
Current approaches generate group recommendations based on the users' individual preferences models.  ...  Group recommender systems (RS) are used to support groups in making common decisions when considering a set of alternatives.  ...  The critiquing-based system enabled the emergence of group consensus, as the exchanged proposals converge to the final selection, and was preferred by users overall.  ...

Incorporating group recommendations to recommender systems: Alternatives and performance

F. Ortega, J. Bobadilla, A. Hernando, A. Gutiérrez
2013 Information Processing & Management  
As we will see here, recommender systems based on collaborative filtering can be used to perform recommendations to group of users.  ...  In this PhD thesis I will provide a wide vision about the state of the art of recommender systems. They were initially based on demographic, contentbased and collaborative filtering.  ...  If they critique a recommendation, the critique acts as a filter over the remaining recommendations.  ...

Iterative voting under uncertainty for group recommender systems

Lihi Naamani Dery, Meir Kalech, Lior Rokach, Bracha Shapira
2010 Proceedings of the fourth ACM conference on Recommender systems - RecSys '10  
Group Recommendation Systems (GRS) aim at recommending items that are relevant for the joint interest of a group of users.  ...  We propose a method to accurately determine the winning item while using a minimal set of the group members ratings, assuming that the recommender system has probabilistic knowledge about the distribution  ...  INTRODUCTION Group Recommender Systems (GRS) provide recommendations for groups of users and are applicable for domains where a group of people participate in a single activity.  ...

Preference elicitation techniques for group recommender systems

Inma Garcia, Sergio Pajares, Laura Sebastia, Eva Onaindia
2012 Information Sciences  
Most group recommender systems (GRSs) make use of some sort of method for aggregating the preference models of individual users to elicit a recommendation that is satisfactory for the whole group.  ...  Preference elicitation techniques for group recommender systems. Information Sciences. 189:155-175.  ...  This type of system is called a Group Recommender System (GRS).  ...

Group Recommender Systems: New Perspectives in the Social Web [chapter]

Iván Cantador, Pablo Castells
2012 Intelligent Systems Reference Library  
In this chapter, we revise state of the art approaches on group formation, modelling and recommendation, and present challenging problems to be included in the group recommender system research agenda  ...  An increasingly important type of recommender systems comprises those that generate suggestions for groups rather than for individuals.  ...  In this section, we revise state of the art group recommendation approaches based on user model aggregation, and approaches based on prediction aggregation.  ...

Preference Elicitation and Negotiation in a Group Recommender System [chapter]

Jesús Omar Álvarez Márquez, Jürgen Ziegler
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a novel approach to group recommender systems that better takes into account the social interaction in a group when formulating, discussing and negotiating the features of the item to be jointly  ...  However, they also indicate that the negotiation-based approach may be more suitable for smaller groups, an aspect that will require further research.  ...  The approach also entails aspects of critique-based recommenders since users can criticize or accept proposed features or recommended items.  ...

Negotiation and Reconciliation of Preferences in a Group Recommender System

Jesús Omar Álvarez Márquez, Jürgen Ziegler
2018 Journal of Information Processing  
Current group recommender techniques are mainly based on aggregating existing user profiles or on a profile of the group as a whole.  ...  We explored the possible benefits of our approach through the development of three prototypes, each based on a different variant of the approach with a different emphasis on private and group-wide preference  ...  However, the revised approach now also entailed aspects of critique-based recommenders during the preference elicitation phase, since users could criticize or accept proposed features.  ...

Music recommendations for groups of users

Pedro Dias, João Magalhães
2013 Proceedings of the 2013 ACM international workshop on Immersive media experiences - ImmersiveMe '13  
In contrast to the majority of group recommender systems described in literature, our system employs a collaborative filtering approach based on latent factor space instead of content-based or ratings  ...  The approach here presented intends to bring a fresh new look over group recommendations, making use of latent factor space to identify groups and make recommendations.  ...  Our approach to group-based recommendation considers a small number of users and a set of leaders to smooth recommendations.  ...
