iPACT: improved web page recommendation system using profile aggregation based on clustering of transactions


Almurtadha, Yahya Mohammed and Sulaiman, Md. Nasir and Mustapha, Norwati and Udzir, Nur Izura (2011) iPACT: improved web page recommendation system using profile aggregation based on clustering of transactions. American Journal of Applied Sciences, 8 (3). pp. 277-283. ISSN 1546-9239; ESSN: 1554-3641


Problem statement: Recently, Web usage mining techniques have been widely used to build recommendation systems especially for anonymous users. Approach: Assigning the current user to the best web navigation profile with similar navigation activities will improve the ability of the prediction engine to produce a recommendation list then introduce it to the user. This study presents iPACT an improved recommendation system using Profile Aggregation based on Clustering of Transactions (PACT). Results: iPACT shows better prediction accuracy than the previous methods PACT and Hypergraph. Conclusion: The users interests change over time; hence an incremental and adaptive web navigation profiling is a key feature for the future works.
