This page is for my thesis: links to articles I have found, notes on what I've found, insights, questions, etc. My thesis is on Recommendation Systems. To give you a general idea, recommendation systems are computer programs (often on the world wide web) that recommend to users items that the user might like. Some examples are Pandora (it recommends music) or Amazon.com (it recommends books and other items). There are a number of different kinds of recommendation systems, as well as a number of issues (security, privacy) that surround such systems. There are a wide range of applications for these systems, and a number of applications within other fields of computer science (interacting multi-agent systems, market economy and trust modeling for computers). In my thesis I will be exploring some of these issues and aspects of recommendation systems.
