Chapter
The term meta origins from the Greek word µ∈τα, meaning after. The word Metaphysics is the title of Aristotle’s book coming after his book on nature called Physics. This has given meta the modern connotation of a nature of a higher order or of a more fundamental kind [1]. Literally, metadata is “data about data”. It can be any descriptive informati...

Recommender systems help people to find information that is interesting to them. However, current recommendation techniques only address the user’s short-term and long-term interests, not their immediate interests. This paper describes a method to structure information (with or without using recommendations) taking into account the users’ immediate...

Adaptive systems can be used to help people find their way through large amounts of information by taking into account the content itself and opinions of other people. Annotations that describe content are important in this process as is generally recognized. What is less obviously stated so far is that not only the annotations themselves, but also...

Daily life is becoming more and more complex due to and despite of the increasing use of 'intelligent' applications and services. This paper argues that user profiles have the potential to solve some recurring problems in our interaction with services, but that this potential is not yet fully realised. One reason being the proprietary solutions so...

Hybrid recommender systems are capable of providing better rec- ommendations than non-hybrid ones. Our approach to hybrid recommenders is the use of prediction strategies that determine which prediction technique(s) should be used at the moment an actual prediction is required. In this paper, we determine whether case-based reasoning can provide mo...

For humans to gain comprehensive views of large amounts of repository contents, they need to have insight into the relations among information objects. It is a challenge to automatically generate presentations of repository contents, through, for example, search results, which reveal such relations to readers. Such presentations must reflect proper...

Generating hypermedia presentations requires processing constituent material into coherent, unified presentations. One large challenge is creating a generic process for producing hypermedia presentations from the semantics of potentially unfamiliar domains. The resulting presentations must both respect the underlying semantics and appear as coheren...
