Mobile recommendations for leisure activities


Begole, J.; Bellotti, V.; Chi, E. H.; Ducheneaut, N.; Newman, M.; Partridge, K. Mobile recommendations for leisure activities. International Workshop on Recommendation and Collaboration at IUI 2008; 2008 January 13; Canary Islands, Spain.

Users can also customize the profile or dynamically adjust the current preferences if they wish to improve the recommendations further.
