D4.3 Additional applications

This deliverable describes the PATHS mobile application, which was developed on the Apple iPad platform.  The app includes selected functionality from the desktop version, including path following and search.  In addition to the mobile application, the deliverable describes the recommender system developed for the PATHS desktop application. Recommender systems are increasingly used to bring relevant content to users’ attention and are part of a set of techniques for personalizing services to the needs of individual users. n PATHS, content-based approaches using the semantic similarity between items were used to suggest content to users. In addition, the deliverable describes a series of experiments that were carried out to explore and evaluate alternative techniques.
