A social matching system : using implicit and explicit information for personalized recommendation in online dating service
Chen, Lin (2013) A social matching system : using implicit and explicit information for personalized recommendation in online dating service. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
Online dating websites enable a specific form of social networking and their efficiency can be increased by supporting proactive recommendations based on participants' preferences with the use of data mining. This research develops two-way recommendation methods for people-to-people recommendation for large online social networks such as online dating networks. This research discovers the characteristics of the online dating networks and utilises these characteristics in developing efficient people-to-people recommendation methods. Methods developed support improved recommendation accuracy, can handle data sparsity that often comes with large data sets and are scalable for handling online networks with a large number of users.
