A Formal Framework for Hypergraph-Based User Profiles

Tarakci, Hilal
Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan
In this study, we propose a formal framework for user profile representation with hypergraphs. We exploit the framework to aggregate partial profiles of the individual to obtain a complete, multi-domain user model, since we aim to model the user from several perspectives. We use Freebase commons package concepts as pre-defined domains. The proposed user model is also capable of extracting user domain capsules, which models the user for the domain of interest. Moreover, using a hypergraph data structure results in solving connection-based problems easily, since the cost of local operations on a graph is low and independent of the size of the whole graph. Many problems in user modelling domain are connection-based problems, such as recommendation.


A usability evaluation framework and a case study on a supplier portal system
Babayiğit, Elif Fatma; Şen, Tayyar; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
The goal of this thesis is to provide a usability evaluation framework in the area of e-procurement technologies and a case study on this base. A survey of the concepts of human computer interaction, usability and usability evaluation techniques is carried out. Additionally current e-procurement technologies are explored and specifically a Company̕s Supplier Portal System which was employed in year 2003, as an e-procurement technology for the procurement of direct goods, is taken into consideration. Pointin...
A Proposed information systems framework for effective delivery of user research findings
Töre Yargın, Gülşen (2011-06-25)
Integration of user research findings into product design process is a well-received issue. There is a tremendous research on how to conduct user research and methodologies for generating user data. However delivering that information effectively is as important as the quality of data generated through user research, since if it is not delivered effectively the impact that is demanded by the product developers would not be achieved. Therefore the requirements for the deliverables should be conceptualized be...
A Feedback Quantization Scheme Leveraging Fairness and Throughput for Heterogeneous Multi-User Diversity Systems
SOYDAN, Yusuf; Candan, Çağatay (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-06-01)
We propose a feedback quantization scheme for downlink multiuser diversity systems. The scheme is designed for heterogeneous users, i.e., users operating under different levels of mean signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs). The proposed scheme equally distributes the channel access time to user clusters and, at the same time, maximizes the sum-rate capacity under equal-channel-access-time constraint. The method is compared to a normalized SNR scheduler, full-feedback scheduler, and finite-rate feedback scheduler wi...
A matheuristic for binary classification of data sets using hyperboxes
Akbulut, Derya; İyigün, Cem; Özdemirel, Nur Evin (null; 2018-07-08)
In this study, an optimization approach is proposed for the binary classification problem. A Mixed Integer Programming (MIP) model formulation is used to construct hyperboxes as classifiers, minimizing the number of misclassified and unclassified samples as well as overlapping of hyperboxes. The hyperboxes are determined by some lower and upper bounds on the feature values, and overlapping of these hyperboxes is allowed to keep a balance between misclassification and overfitting. A matheuristic, namely Iter...
An assume guarantee verification methodology for aspect oriented programming
Ispir, Mustafa; Betin Can, Aysu (2008-09-19)
We propose a modular verification methodology for aspect oriented programs. Aspects are the new modularization units to encapsulate crosscutting concerns and have powerful features whose effects can drastically change software behavior. Having such an impact on behavior requires an automated verification support. In this work we introduce a technique that separately answers two questions: "does the aspect have the provisioned effect?" and "does the base program satisfy the assumptions of the aspect?" To ans...
