Argumentation-enabled interest-based personalised recommender system
Recommender systems (RSs) use information filtering to recommend information of interest (to a user). Similarly, personalisation can be adopted for recommendations in e-market. We propose a new and innovative system called as interest-based recommender system (IBRS) for personalisation of recommendations. The IBRS is an agent-based RS that takes into account user's preferences. It can transform a standard product (or service) into a dedicated solution for an individual. The system discovers interesting product alternatives based on user's underlying mental attitudes (likes and dislikes) during the repair process using argumentation. The proposed method combines a hybrid RS approach with automated argumentation-based reasoning between agents. The system improves results by improving the recommendation repair activity. We consider a book recommendation application, for experiment to carry out the system's (objective and subjective) evaluation using standard metrics. The experiments confirm that the proposed IBRS improves user's acceptance of the product as compared with a traditional hybrid method and an argumentation-enabled state-of-the-art recommendation method. The system has been found to be more effective than its traditional counterpart when dealing with the new user problems.
