Context-Aware Recommender Systems 2012 (In conjunction with the 6th ACM Conference on Recommender Systems (RecSys 2012))
I usually think of recommender systems as attempts to deliver content based on clues about my interests or context. If I dial 911, the location of the nearest pizza vendor probably isn’t high on my lists of interests, etc.
As I looked over these proceedings, it occurred to me that subject identity, for merging purposes, isn’t limited to the context of the subject in question.
That is some merging tests could depend upon my context as a user.
Take my 911 call for instance. For many purposes, a police substation, fire station, 24 hour medical clinic and a hospital are different subjects.
In a medical emergency situation, for which a 911 call might be a clue, all of those could be treated as a single subject – places for immediate medical attention.
What other subjects do you think might merge (or not) depending upon your context?
