Presentation Models by Example [chapter]

Interface builders and multi-media authoring tools only support the construction of static displays where the components of the display are known at design time (e.g., buttons, menus). High-level UIMSs and automated designers support more sophisticated displays but are not easy to use as they require dealing explicitly with elaborate abstract concepts. This paper describes a GUI development environment, HandsOn, where complex displays of dynamically changing data can be constructed by direct

HandsOn integrates principles of graphic design, supports constraint-based layout, and has facilities for easily specifying the layout of collections of data. The system incorporates Programming By Example techniques to relieve the designer from having to deal with abstractions, and relies on a model-based language for the representation of the displays being constructed and as a means to provide information for the tool to reason about. Keywords User interface development tools, model-based user interfaces, direct manipulation, programming by example, data visualization, graphic design.

Fast Trace Generation of Many-Core Embedded Systems with Native Simulation [article]

David Castells-Rufas, Jordi Carrabina, Pablo González de Aledo Marugán, Pablo Sánchez Espeso
2014 arXiv   pre-print
Embedded Software development and optimization are complex tasks. Late availably of hardware platforms, their usual low visibility and controllability, and their limiting resource constraints makes early performance estimation an attractive option instead of using the final execution platform. With early performance estimation, software development can progress although the real hardware is not yet available or it is too complex to interact with. In this paper, we present how the native

Sudden Death: A New Way to Compare Recommendation Diversification [article]

Derek Bridge and Mesut Kaya and Pablo Castells
2019 arXiv   pre-print
This paper describes problems with the current way we compare the diversity of different recommendation lists in offline experiments. We illustrate the problems with a case study. We propose the Sudden Death score as a new and better way of making these comparisons.

Predicting Neighbor Goodness in Collaborative Filtering [chapter]

Alejandro Bellogín, Pablo Castells
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Performance prediction has gained increasing attention in the IR field since the half of the past decade and has become an established research topic in the field. The present work restates the problem in the subarea of Collaborative Filtering (CF), where it has barely been researched so far. We investigate the adaptation of clarity-based query performance predictors to define predictors of neighbor performance in CF. The proposed predictors are introduced in a memory-based CF algorithm to

The approach is tested with encouraging empirical results, as the dynamic variants consistently outperform the baseline algorithms, with increasing difference on small neighborhoods.

Probabilistic Score Normalization for Rank Aggregation [chapter]

Miriam Fernández, David Vallet, Pablo Castells
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Rank aggregation is a pervading operation in IR technology. We hypothesize that the performance of score-based aggregation may be affected by artificial, usually meaningless deviations consistently occurring in the input score distributions, which distort the combined result when the individual biases differ from each other. We propose a score-based rank aggregation model where the source scores are normalized to a common distribution before being combined. Early experiments on available data

An Ontology-Based Information Retrieval Model [chapter]

David Vallet, Miriam Fernández, Pablo Castells
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Semantic search has been one of the motivations of the Semantic Web since it was envisioned. We propose a model for the exploitation of ontologybased KBs to improve search over large document repositories. Our approach includes an ontology-based scheme for the semi-automatic annotation of documents, and a retrieval system. The retrieval model is based on an adaptation of the classic vector-space model, including an annotation weighting algorithm, and a ranking algorithm. Semantic search is

Service classification using standard or proprietary taxonomies is a common and simple facility in this context, complementarily to more sophisticated service management retrieval techniques. In this paper we propose a heuristic approach for the semi-automatic classification of Web services, based on a three-level matching procedure between services and classification categories, assuming a corpus of previously classified services is available. An experimental test of the proposed techniques is reported, showing positive results.

A multilayer ontology-based hybrid recommendation model

Iván Cantador, Alejandro Bellogín, Pablo Castells
2008 AI Communications  
We propose a novel hybrid recommendation model in which user preferences and item features are described in terms of semantic concepts defined in domain ontologies. The exploitation of meta-information describing the recommended items and user profiles in a general, portable way, along with the capability of inferring knowledge from the relations defined in the ontologies, are the key aspects of the presented proposal. Taking advantage of the enhanced semantics representation, user profiles are
more » ... , user profiles are compared at a finer grain size than they are in usual recommender systems. More specifically, the concept, item, and user spaces are clustered in a coordinated way, and the resulting clusters are used to find similarities among individuals at multiple semantic layers. Such layers correspond to implicit Communities of Interest (CoI), and enable collaborative recommendations of enhanced precision. Our approach is tested in two sets of experiments: one including profiles manually defined by real users and another with automatically generated profiles based on data from the IMDb and MovieLens datasets.

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

2012 Intelligent Systems Reference Library  
An increasingly important type of recommender systems comprises those that generate suggestions for groups rather than for individuals. 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 in the context of the Social Web.

A Heuristic Approach to Semantic Web Services Classification [chapter]

Finding Iteration Patterns in Dynamic Web Page Authoring [chapter]

José A. Macías, Pablo Castells
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Most of the current WWW is made up of dynamic pages. The development of dynamic pages is a difficult and costly endeavour, out-of-reach for most users, experts, and content producers. We have developed a set of techniques to support the edition of dynamic web pages in a WYSIWYG environment. In this paper we focus on specific techniques for inferring changes to page generation procedures from users actions on examples of the pages generated by these procedures. More specifically, we propose
more » ... ly, we propose techniques for detecting iteration patterns in users' behavior in web page editing tasks involving page structures like lists, tables and other iterative HTML constructs. Such patterns are used in our authoring tool, DESK, where a specialized assistant, DESK-A, detects iteration patterns and generates, using Programming by Example, a programmatic representation of the user's actions. Iteration patterns help obtain a more detailed characterization of users' intent, based on user monitoring techniques, that is put in relation to application knowledge automatically extracted by our system from HTML pages. DESK-A relieves end-users from having to learn programming and specification languages for editing dynamic-generated web pages.
