A hybrid video recommendation system based on a graph-based algorithm

Öztürk, Gizem
This thesis proposes the design, development and evaluation of a hybrid video recommendation system. The proposed hybrid video recommendation system is based on a graph algorithm called Adsorption. Adsorption is a collaborative filtering algorithm in which relations between users are used to make recommendations. Adsorption is used to generate the base recommendation list. In order to overcome the problems that occur in pure collaborative system, content based filtering is injected. Content based filtering uses the idea of suggesting similar items that matches user preferences. In order to use content based filtering, first, the base recommendation list is updated by removing weak recommendations. Following this, item similarities of the remaining list are calculated and new items are inserted to form the final recommendations. Thus, collaborative recommendations are empowered considering item similarities. Therefore, the developed hybrid system combines both collaborative and content based approaches to produce more effective suggestions.


Visual composition component oriented development
Öztürk, Murat Mutlu; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2005)
This thesis introduces a visual composition approach for JavaBeans components, in compliance with the Component Oriented Software Engineering (COSE) process. The graphical modeling tool, COSECASE, is enhanced with the ability to build a system by integrating domain-specific components. Such integration is implemented by defining connection points and interaction details between components. The event model of the JavaBeans architecture is also added to the capabilities.
A business rule approach to requirements traceability
Narmanlı, Murat; Doğru, Ali Hikmet; Department of Computer Engineering (2010)
In this thesis, a requirements traceability model is proposed in order to make efficient and effective change request impact analysis. The proposed model is a requirements – requirements traceability model. There are several researches regarding software requirements traceability problem. The main problem of these researches is that the proposed solutions can not be applied to software industry with affordable changes. However, current literature begins to see that describing all the software requirements i...
A Virtual reality-based training environment designed for hands-on experience of software development
Güleç, Ulaş; İşler, Veysi; Yılmaz, Murat; Department of Computer Engineering (2018)
This thesis study proposes an environment that provides an interactive virtual reality experience for individuals about the tasks of software development process starting from requirement analysis through software testing. The environment transports participants to the virtual world of a software development organization where they experience development problems. In this environment, the participant takes on the role of a novice software developer being recruited into a virtual software development organiz...
Deploying and invoking secure web services over JXTA framework
Görgün, İlhami; Doğaç, Asuman; Department of Computer Engineering (2004)
Web services introduce a new paradigm for distributed computing, and the technology that it introduces constructs a new type of Web application. Web services can be described as any software that makes its discovery and invocation available over the Internet, and uses a standardized XML messaging system. The term peer-to-peer refers to a class of decentralized systems enabling the access of shared resources available on peers that are acting both as client and as server. In this work, a peer-to-peer approac...
MC6811 microcontroller simulation toolkit
Taşkın, Tolga; Güran, Hasan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
The goal of this thesis study is to develop a simulator toolkit for Motorola̕s 8-bit microcontroller MC6811. The toolkit contains a cross-assembler to obtain object code from the source code and a simulator to run the object code. Written document of this thesis study describes the properties of the MC6811 microcontroller and its assembly language. In addition, the document describes the cross-assembler and simulator parts of the toolkit with details. In the cross-assembler part of the toolkit, parsing of t...
