Abstract

This paper first presents an adaptive user preference model for personalized service delivery systems. In this model, user preference is modeled by a two-layer tree with dynamic changeable structures. The top layer of the tree is used for modeling user’s long term service preference. Each node represents user’s long term evolving commitment to certain categories of service. The lower layer of the tree is used for modeling user spontaneous service requirement which depends on context of use. Each node relates one context of use to one or more desired service requirements. The tree is dynamically constructed by the formal relation definitions among nodes. The advantage of this structure is three folds: (1) it can not only model the user’s long term but also spontaneous preference items. More over, the relations between all preference items are formally defined; (2) if the number of preference items is many, it is more efficient and easier to find the right preference items; (3) if the user desired service has been removed, the system can utilize the personalized hierarchy service structure of the preference tree to calculate and recommend similar services. After the introduction of the user preference modeling, an algorithm of how to build it is presented. Finally, we customized the user preference for personalized in-flight entertainment recommendation to validate its features.
