Broadway*Tools - Generator of Adaptative Recommender Systems
Participants : Mihai Jurca, Brigitte Trousse [correspondante].
Broadway*Tools is a toolbox used to facilitate the creation of adaptive recommendation systems for information retrieval on the Web or in a Internet/intranet information system. This toolbox offers different servers, including a server that calculates recommendations based on the observation of the user sessions and on the re-use of user groups' former sessions. A recommender system created with Broadway*tools observes navigations of various users and gather the evaluations and annotations of those users to draw up a list of relevant recommendations (Web documents, keywords, etc).
Different recommender systems have been developed: Broadway-Web, educaid (France Telecom Lannion - Inria contract), Be-CBKB (XRCE-Inria contract), e-behaviour (Ocolors Action, use of the mouse and eye-tracking events), etc.
Broadway*Tools is used in two current contracts: EPIA and MobiVip.
