Ubicomp Day 2

Here’s my pick for day 2: “Hapori: Context-based Local Search for Mobile Phones using Community Behavioral Modeling and Similarity“, fromĀ Dartmouth/Microsoft. This is a very neat example of context-aware recommender system, where POIs are being recommended to people

based on a rich variety of information, encompassing temporal information (day of the week, time of the day, etc), weather, and the activity of the user. As the authors summarise: “The goal of Hapori is to meet the diverse needs of different people (such as the teenager and senior) taking into account their context, behavioral profile and behavioral similarities with others in the broader community of local search users“.
