Image Content in Location-Based Shopping Recommender Systems for Mobile Users
In this paper, the authors show how image content can be used to realize a shopping recommender system for intuitively supporting mobile users in decision making. A mobile user equipped with a camera enabled smart phone combined with Global Positioning System (GPS) capabilities would benefit in using a recommender system for mobile users. This paper presents the proposed recommender system and the simulated results of the recommender system. In summary the main contribution of this paper is to show how image retrieval, image content and camera enabled smart mobile device with GPS capabilities can be used to realize a location-based shopping recommender system for mobile users.
