Title: Hybrid Personalization for Recommendations
Authors: Herder, Eelco
Kärger, Philipp
Keywords: personalization
Issue Date: 25-Nov-2008
Abstract: In this paper we present the concept of hybrid personalization, the combination of multiple atomic personalization mechanisms. The idea of hybrid personalization is related to hybrid recommender systems, but works on a conceptual level—it is decoupled from the actual adaptation in the user interface. This has as an advantage that one can optimize the adaptation ‘behind the screens’ or—conversely—attach a new visualization mechanism to the personalization technique. We show the practical benefits of this layered, hybrid adaptation mechanisms by means of a case study on personalized curriculum planning where it is recommended which course could or should be followed at which state in the learning process.
