ABSTRACT This paper discusses accuracy in processing ratings of and recommendations for item features. Such processing facilitates feature- based user navigation in recommender system interfaces. Item features, often in the form of tags, categories or meta-data, are becoming impor- tant hypertext components of recommender interfaces. Recommending features would help unfamiliar users navigate in such environments. This work explores techniques for improving feature recommendation accu- racy. Conversely, it also examines possibilities for processing user ratings of features to improve recommendation of both features and items. This work's illustrative implementation is a web portal for a museum collection that lets users browse, rate and receive recommendations for both artworks and interrelated topics about them. Accuracy measure- ments compare proposed techniques for processing feature ratings and recommending features. Resulting techniques recommend features with relative accuracy. Analysis indicates that processing ratings of either fea- tures or items does not improve accuracy of recommending the other.

    ABSTRACT: A hypermedia application offers its users much freedom to navigate through a large hyperspace. Adaptive Hypermedia (AH) offers personalized content, presentation and navigation support. Many Adaptive Hypermedia Systems (AHS) are tightly integrated with one specific application and/or use a limited number of techniques and methods. This makes it difficult to capture all of them in one generic model. In this paper we examine adaptation questions stated in the very beginning of the adaptive hypermedia era and elaborate on their recent interpretations. We will reconsider design issues for application independent generic adaptive hypermedia systems, review open questions of system extensibility introduced in adjacent research fields and try to come up with an up-to-date taxonomy of adaptation techniques and an extensive set of requirements for a new adaptive system reference model or architecture, to be developed in the future.1
