Many online services provide users with recommendations, to help them find items of interest in the enormous space of available choices. Popular examples of such recommender services include videos (YouTube), music (Spotify), movies (Netflix), online shopping (Amazon), etc. In this project, we wish to provide recommendations for scientific literature to researchers.
ArXivDigest is a platform for personalized scientific literature recommendation. It allows users to sign up and receive a digest email with recommended research articles that are published on arXiv.org. The recommendation part of the platform is open, meaning that external systems can generate and submit recommendations for users, and there is a broker infrastructure in place that combines these.
This project consists of two main parts. It may be pursued by a group of two students or may be split to two individual projects.
Evaluation is to be performed by observing how users interact with the live service.
