PAPER Investigation and application of Personalizing Recommender Systems ....

www.ijana.in/papers/V6I2-2.pdf
 Investigation and application of Personalizing Recommender Systems based on ALIDATA DISCOVERY 

abstract:
To aid in the decision-making process, recommender systems use the available data on the items themselves.
Personalized recommender systems subsequently use this input data, and convert it to an output in the form of ordered lists or scores of items in which a user might be interested. These lists or scores are the final result the user will be presented with, and their goal is to assist the user in the decision-making process. The application of recommender systems outlined was just a small introduction to the possibilities of the extension. Recommender systems became essential in an information- and decision-overloaded world. They changed the way users make decisions, and helped their creators to increase revenue at the same time. 


Please remember:
Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences)

Aereo by IAC (IACI) GAME OVER now, Tinder should be next!

http://vator.tv/news/2014-11-21-the-dream-is-dead-aereo-files-for-chapter-11-bankrupty

Imagine a NEW Legislation for Online Dating Sites to force them disclose how many active members they have (Premium members: paid or with gift subscriptions) ?
And also force them to conduct ID verification ? A variety of new laws, or new interpretations of existing laws, could subject dating sites to claims or otherwise harm their business. (extracted from IAC SEC filing)

As usual, eHarmony hacked again

Year over year the same scratched disk, eHarmony hacked again.

Several online dating sites, like PlentyOfFish and eHarmony HAD BEEN ALERTED IN ADVANCE, since 2009 about security holes, but they had not paid the attention it deserved.

Crazy article about Tinder - IAC spinoff

http://www.thestreet.com/story/12955209/1/unlocking-tinder-could-lead-to-5-billion-spinoff-for-iacs-dating-biz.html

Tinder is destroying Match from inside.
The mission of Tinder was to destroy Badoo, Zoosk, HowAboutWe, Spark Networks' sites, Snap Interactive's sites and others similar to them (social dating, social discovery)
Tinder failed in that mission and now is destroying Match (cannibalizing it)

My bet: IAC will put Tinder to sleep soon or later. Facebook allows minors to use it (people from 13 to 17 years old)
Online Dating is NOT for minors.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/08/how-tinder-will-collapse.html
The IAC is not going to conduct Identity Verification to screen all Tinder's members.
It seems Tinder is like Chatroulette but it will collapse like Skout.

Tinder tried to be the next .... Facebook (Forbes saga). BUT FAILED

Rocket Internet AG. Half1 2014 financials; they are losers, NOT proven winners



http://rocketinternet.pr.co/90291-h1-2014-results-and-business-update
http://tech.eu/news/rocket-internet-business-update-h1-2014-slides/

Rocket's "proven winners" are proven losers when it comes to trying to make a profit.
http://www.ft.com/intl/fastft/237332

For me it seems only a big Ponzi scheme, a big bubble full of dark smoke. I suspect no one of those companies are designed to be profitable ever. They have big losses because they sell below cost to gain traction. All cloned companies seem like bubbles.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/09/i-agree-with-article-rocket-internet.html
If you want to replicate a big success in Brazil, it will be as hard as the same to replicate it in all European countries, but in this case with 1/8 of population and the majority of the persons DO NOT own or WILL NOT use a credit/debit card to buy online! They will prefer to research online and then buy offline.
The same for Africa, and perhaps the same for Russia. Many if not most, USA, Canada or European businesses models are unfeasible in Latin American countries! Perhaps the same situation for Africa, Russia or even Australia.(transportation costs could be 10 times bigger than Europe)

70% of eHarmony's users say they are not satisfied with eHarmony ???

70% of eHarmony's users say they are not satisfied with eHarmony ??? NOTHING NEW FOR ME!!!

http://www.cio.com/article/2845557/mobile-application-management/business-intelligence-meets-mobility-at-eharmony.html
eHarmony, is a 14+ years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/10/eharmony-mapping-love-with-hadoop.html

eHarmony is a 14+ years old obsolete site using Big Five traits to measure personality of its members, but the Big Five normative test that had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
The Big Five normative test had been replaced by HEXACO or Big Six test.
Online Dating sites OFFERING COMPATIBILITY MATCHING METHODS BASED ON PERSONALITY SIMILARITY have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead.
The same applies for Personality Based Recommender Systems.
Please see: "How to calculate personality similarity between users" Short answer: the key is the ENSEMBLE!
(the whole set of different valid possibilities)
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/03/how-to-calculate-personality-similarity.html

Worldwide there are over 5,000 online dating sites, no one uses the 16PF5, no one is scientifically proven yet, and no one can show you compatibility distribution curves, i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

eHarmony's algorithm is in the range of showing you 3 most compatible persons per 1,000 persons screened, and with the 16PF5 you can reach 3 most compatible persons per 100,000 persons screened; a 100 times more powerful algorithm (NOT 100% improvement, a 100 X improvement, really an innovation)





LIFEPROJECT METHOD: 100X better than eHarmony, not 100% better, 100 times better!

BAD NEWS Big Lawsuit against Match dismissed!

http://www.jdsupra.com/legalnews/use-of-porn-star-images-in-romance-frau-25419/
Evan Spencer, had said that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match fail to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that her pictures were being used hundreds of times.

Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry for years.
The Online Dating Industry is performing like the Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry before the USA Food and Drug Administration was created. There is no/weak Legislation, no ID verification, low reliable background checks, no Quality Norms.
No one compatibility matching method is Scientifically Proven.
The entire Online Dating Industry for serious daters in 1st World Countries is a HOAX, performing as a Big Online Casino, with a low effectiveness/efficiency level of their matching algorithms (less than 10%). In the same range as searching by your own.

I live in a South American country and I am really astonished to see how online daters in "1st World" countries are really victims of human experimentation. No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships -and very low divorce rates- than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.  The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
