On Unexpectedness in Recommender Systems

Panagiotis Adamopoulos, Alexander Tuzhilin
2014 ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology  
On unexpectedness in recommender systems: Or how to better expect the unexpected.  ...  In particular, we propose a new concept of unexpectedness as recommending to users those items that depart from what they would expect from the system -the consideration set of each user.  ...  he expects to receive or has received in the past.  ...

Fusion-based Recommender System for Improving Serendipity

Kenta Oku, Fumio Hattori
2011 ACM Conference on Recommender Systems  
In this paper, we propose a Fusion-based Recommender System that aims to improve the serendipity of recommender systems.  ...  Serendipity, which is one of these measures, is defined as a measure that indicates how the recommender system can find unexpected and useful items for users.  ...  It is based on the assumption that the greater the extent to which the user restricts support to only the recommended item r k , the better the user supports item r k .  ...

User Curiosity Factor in Determining Serendipity of Recommender System

Arseto Satriyo Nugroho, Igi Ardiyanto, Teguh Bharata Adji
2021 IJITEE (International Journal of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering)  
Since the concept of a recommendation system is still evolving today, formalizing the definition of serendipity in a recommendation system is very challenging.One known subjective factor of serendipity  ...  Too much focus on accuracy in RS may lead to an overspecialization problem, which will decrease its effectiveness.  ...  One method is by calculating the distance of recommended items to the users' expected item set [30] . The expected set by user ' will have an unexpectedness value of 0.  ...

Beyond accuracy

Mouzhi Ge, Carla Delgado-Battenfeld, Dietmar Jannach
2010 Proceedings of the fourth ACM conference on Recommender systems - RecSys '10  
When we evaluate the quality of recommender systems (RS), most approaches only focus on the predictive accuracy of these systems.  ...  We then analyze the role of coverage and serendipity as indicators of recommendation quality, present novel ways of how they can be measured and discuss how to interpret the obtained measurements.  ...  In order to measure unexpectedness, we need a benchmark model that generates expected recommendations.  ...

Influence of tweets and diversification on serendipitous research paper recommender systems

Chifumi Nishioka, Jörn Hauke, Ansgar Scherp
2020 PeerJ Computer Science  
In recent years, a large body of literature has accumulated around the topic of research paper recommender systems.  ...  As an evaluation metric, we use the serendipity score (SRDP), in which the unexpectedness of recommendations is inferred by using a primitive recommendation strategy.  ...  The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.  ...

Q-Chef: The impact of surprise-eliciting systems on food-related decision-making

Kazjon Grace, Elanor Finch, Natalia Gulbransen-Diaz, Hamish Henderson
2022 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems  
While recommendation systems are an effective approach to assist users with this culinary decision-making, they typically prioritise similarity to a query or user profile to give relevant results.  ...  We conclude with a set of suggestions for the design of future surprise-eliciting recipe systems. CCS CONCEPTS • Human-centered computing → Interaction design; Empirical studies in HCI.  ...  The authors also gratefully acknowledge the support of the Australian Research Council (Project #DE180101416).  ...

Being accurate is not enough

Sean M. McNee, John Riedl, Joseph A. Konstan
2006 CHI '06 extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '06  
Most research up to this point has focused on improving the accuracy of recommender systems. We believe that not only has this narrow focus been misguided, but has even been detrimental to the field.  ...  The recommendations that are most accurate according to the standard metrics are sometimes not the recommendations that are most useful to users.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank our collaborators, Cai-Nicolas Ziegler and Roberto Torres, and all of GroupLens Research.  ...
