Conceptual Web Users’ Actions Prediction for Ontology-Based Browsing Recommendations
- 1.3k Downloads
The Internet consists of thousands of web sites with different kinds of structures. However, users are browsing the web according to their informational expectations towards the web site searched, having an implicit conceptual model of the domain in their minds. Nevertheless, people tend to repeat themselves and have partially shared conceptual views while surfing the web, finding some areas of web sites more interesting than others. Herein, we take advantage of the latter and provide a model and a study on predicting users’ actions based on the web ontology concepts and their relations.
