Computer Science staff and student win Best Student Paper Award in UMAP 2015

計算機科學系師生同獲UMAP 2015國際研討會「最優秀學生論文獎」

Ms Carrie Wu, PhD student and Dr Chen Li, Assistant Professor, of the Department of Computer Science, won The James Chen Best Student Paper Award for their outstanding paper entitled “Implicit Acquisition of User Personality for Augmenting Movie Recommendations” at the 23rd Conference on User Modelling, Adaptation and Personalization (UMAP 2015) held in Dublin, Ireland on 3 July 2015.
Their paper was one of the two best papers selected from among 112 submissions to the Conference. Carrie said, “I have learnt a lot about tackling practical problems from the users’ perspective.”
The award-winning paper presented an approach to derive users’ personality implicitly from their behaviour in selecting movies, and to further use the derived personality profile to make personalised film recommendations. Their research output indicates an effective way of inferring users’ personality and operating personality-based recommender systems in an online environment.

計算機科學系吳雯同學(博士研究生)與助理教授陳黎博士憑合著論文〈Implicit Acquisition of User Personality for Augmenting Movie Recommendations〉,於7月3日在愛爾蘭都柏林舉行的「UMAP 2015國際會議」上獲頒發「James Chen最優秀學生論文獎」。
