Discovering User Profiles

Presented at: 18th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2009)

by Riddhiman Ghosh, Mohamed Dekhil


In this paper we describe techniques for the discovery and construction of user profiles. Leveraging from the emergent data web, our system addresses the problem of sparseness of user profile information currently faced by both asserted and inferred profile systems. A profile mediator, that dynamically builds the most suitable user profile for a particular service or interaction in real-time, is employed in our prototype implementation.
