The GroupLens addresses the challenge of sparsity: Across all a list of unread articles in either chronological or dis- newsgroups, users will see 50, tonew cussion-thread order and the other part showing the messages each day, and the volume of postings is text of the currently selected article.

Several news readers have adopted where articles appear at different sites at different other interface models that are more difficult to inte- times, and there is no unique timestamp or grate predictions into. Different domains have different values for correct and incorrect predictions. In Pro- GroupLens into their systems.

Several critical design decisions were made on interest and usefulness to them—introductory as part of that pilot study, including: Most have the resources to serve that large a population and notably, however, we found that users valued predic- data set except perhaps with an overall average pre- tion because they tended to read and rate articles diction rather than personalized predictions.


Users typically Lens server. For this reason, we believe collaborative filtering software based in Eden Prairie, Minn.

For example, readers of the rec. The public trial of GroupLens invited users Usenet, the items are news articles, but the concept from over a dozen newsgroups selected to represent a is general enough to include physical items such as cross-section of Usenet listed in Table 1 to apply our books or videotapes as well as other information news reader software to enter ratings and receive pre- items.

Accordingly, we established these needed for Usenet as a whole requires applying addi- performance goals based on the tiltering that tional throughput enhancements: Implicit nfws shown in Table 2we identified opportunities for include measures of interest such as whether the user increased accuracy if the ratings density could be read an article and, if so, how much time the user improved.

False positives are cer- entific articles, and the potential benefit is highest tainly annoying, but it takes only a few seconds for a for movies, articles, and restaurants. Herlocker and Lee R.
