Personalizing, while socializing.
Personalizing also means understanding your limits – people’s experiences are a whole lot richer than just their clicks and updates. Not all aspects of people’s experiences are captured by systems’ representations, and models based on aggregates of user-generated data from social media present additional challenges. Using examples from research projects at Yahoo Labs, I’ll address both opportunities and challenges in creating personalized location-based experiences; and in using mobile data to characterize local surroundings.
There? Say hi!
