Abstract: In this paper we investigate the incorporation of information about the users’ personality into a number of collaborative filtering methods, aiming to address situations of user preference scarcity. Through empirical experiments on a multi-domain dataset obtained from Facebook, we show that the proposed personality-aware collaborative filtering methods effectively –and consistently in the studied domains– increase recommendation performance, in terms of both precision and recall. We also present an analysis of relationships existing between user preferences and personality for the different domains, considering the users’ gender and age.
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)
If you want to be first in the "personalization arena" == Personality Based Recommender Systems, you should understand HOW TO INNOVATE in the ................ Online Dating Industry first of all!
WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites
but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!
but no one is scientifically proven!
The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlationwith quantized patterns.
Without offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.
What comes after the Social Networking wave?
The Next Big Investment Opportunity on the Internet will be .... Personalization!
