The Theory of K-representations as a Flexible Tool for Designing Natural-Language Interfaces of Recommender System
The paper describes a new method of constructing recommender systems with natural-language interface. This method is based on the theory of K-representations (knowledge representations) - a new theory of designing semantic-syntactic analyzers of natural language texts with the broad use of formal means for representing input, intermediary, and output data. The current version of the theory is set forth in a monograph (the author is V.A. Fomichov) published by Springer in 2010. The stated approach is implemented in the programming environment PHP + MySQL: an experimental recommender system has been developed.
