Proceedings of The 2014 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Joint Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology, WI-IAT 2014, 11-14 August 2014 Warsaw, Poland
This volume contains the papers selected for presentation at the 2014 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence (WI'14), held as part of the 2014 Web Intelligence Congress (WIC'14) at the University of Warsaw, Warsaw, Poland, from 11 to 14 in August, 2014. The conference was sponsored and co-organized by the IEEE Computer Society, the Web Intelligence Consortium (WIC), Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the University of Warsaw, Polish Mathematical Society and Warsaw University of Technology.
The series of Web Intelligence conferences was started in Japan in 2001. Since then, it has been held yearly in several countries, including: Canada, China, France, USA, Australia and Italy. It is recognized as the World's leading forum focusing on the role of Web Intelligence as one of the most important directions for scientific research and development of solutions that contribute to creation of the Knowledge-based Society. In 2014, WI visited Poland as a special event commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Web.
WI'14 received 242 paper submissions, in the areas of foundations of Web Intelligence, semantic aspects of Web Intelligence, World Wide Wisdom Web, Web search and recommendation, Web mining and warehousing, Human-Web interaction, as well as Web Intelligence technologies and applications. After a rigorous evaluation process, 85 papers were selected as regular contributions, giving an acceptance rate of 35.1%.
The first five sections of this volume include 40 regular contributions. Additionally, the first paper in the first section corresponds to one of WIC'14 keynotes. The last four sections of this volume contain 23 papers selected for oral presentations in WI'14 workshops. The remaining 45 regular contributions and 25 papers accepted to WI'14 special sessions are published in another volume of WI’14 proceedings.
This paper discusses the recommender models and methods for crowdsourcing platforms. These models are based on modern methods of data analysis of object-attribute data, such as Formal Concept Analysis and biclustering. In particular, the paper is focused on the solution of two tasks – idea and antagonists recommendation – on the example of crowdsourcing platform Witology.
We propose extensions of the classical JSM-method andtheNa ̈ıveBayesianclassifierforthecaseoftriadicrelational data. We performed a series of experiments on various types of data (both real and synthetic) to estimate quality of classification techniques and compare them with other classification algorithms that generate hypotheses, e.g. ID3 and Random Forest. In addition to classification precision and recall we also evaluated the time performance of the proposed methods.
We present a new recommender system developed for the Russian interactive radio network FMhost based on a previously proposed model. The underlying model combines a collaborative user-based approach with information from tags of listened tracks in order to match user and radio station profiles. It follows an adaptive online learning strategy based on the user history. We compare the proposed algorithms and an industry standard technique based on singular value decomposition (SVD) in terms of precision, recall, and NDCG measures; experiments show that in our case the fusion-based approach shows the best results.
