Recomindation: New Functions for Augmented Memories

By: Carolin Plate, Nathalie Basselin, Alexander Kröner, Michael Schneider, Stephan Baldes, Vania Dimitrova, and Anthony Jameson (2006)

Abstract: Advances in technological support for augmented personal memories make possible new ways of enhancing the process of product recommendation. Instead of simply analyzing information about a user’s past behavior in order to generate recommendations, a recominder system can additionally supply various types of information from the user’s augmented memory that allows the user to take a more active role in the search for suitable products. We illustrate the paradigm of recomindation with reference to a prototype implementation of the system Specter in a CD shopping scenario and the results of a study with 20 users. The results shed light on the the potential and limitations of the proposed new functionality.
