A Linked Data Browser with Recommendations
Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
It is becoming more common to publish data in a way that accords with the Linked Data principles. In an effort to improve the human exploitation of this data, we propose a Linked Data browser that is enhanced with recommendation functionality. Based on a user profile, also represented as Linked Data, we propose a technique that we call LDRec that chooses in a personalized way which of the resources that lie within a certain neighbourhood in a Linked Data graph to recommend to the user. The recommendation technique, which is novel, is inspired by a collective classifier known as the Iterative Classification Algorithm. We evaluate LDRec using both an off-line experiment and a user trial. In the off-line experiment, we obtain higher hit rates than we obtain using a simpler classifier. In the user trial, comparing against the same simpler classifier, participants report significantly higher levels of overall satisfaction for LDRec.
