conference contributionposted on 2013-01-01, 00:00 authored by Yongli Ren, Gang LiGang Li, Wanlei Zhou
Recommendations based on off-line data processing has attracted increasing attention from both research communities and IT industries. The recommendation techniques could be used to explore huge volumes of data, identify the items that users probably like, and translate the research results into real-world applications, etc. This paper surveys the recent progress in the research of recommendations based on off-line data processing, with emphasis on new techniques (such as context-based recommendation, temporal recommendation), and new features (such as serendipitous recommendation). Finally, we outline some existing challenges for future research. © 2013 IEEE.
