Case-base maintenance with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms. (2015)
Journal Article
LUPIANI, E., MASSIE, S., CRAW, S., JUAREZ, J.M. and PALMA, J. 2016. Case-base maintenance with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms. Journal of intelligent information systems [online], 46(2), pages 259-284. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s10844-015-0378-z

Case-Base Reasoning is a problem-solving methodology that uses old solved problems, called cases, to solve new problems. The case-base is the knowledge source where the cases are stored, and the amount of stored cases is critical to the problem-solvi...

Music recommenders: user evaluation without real users? (2015)
Conference Proceeding
CRAW, S., HORSBURGH, B. and MASSIE, S. 2015. Music recommenders: user evaluation without real users? In Yang, Q. and Woolridge, M. (eds.) Proceedings of the 24th International joint conference on artificial intelligence (IJCAI-15), 25-31 July 2015, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Palo Alto: AAAI Press [online], pages 1749-1755. Available from: https://www.ijcai.org/Proceedings/15/Papers/249.pdf

Good music recommenders should not only suggest quality recommendations, but should also allow users to discover new/niche music. User studies capture explicit feedback on recommendation quality and novelty, but can be expensive, and may have difficu... Read More about Music recommenders: user evaluation without real users?.

Learning pseudo-tags to augment sparse tagging in hybrid music recommender systems. (2014)
Journal Article
HORSBURGH, B., CRAW, S. and MASSIE, S. 2015. Learning pseudo-tags to augment sparse tagging in hybrid music recommender systems. Artificial intelligence [online], 219, pages 25-39. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.artint.2014.11.004

Online recommender systems are an important tool that people use to find new music. To generate recommendations, many systems rely on tag representations of music. Such systems however suffer from tag sparsity, whereby tracks lack a strong tag repres... Read More about Learning pseudo-tags to augment sparse tagging in hybrid music recommender systems..

Integrating content and semantic representations for music recommendation. (2013)
Thesis
HORSBURGH, B. 2013. Integrating content and semantic representations for music recommendation. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Music recommender systems are used by millions of people every day to discover new and exciting music. Central to making recommendations is the representation of each track, which may be used to calculate similarity. Content representations capture t...

Case-Base Maintenance (CBM) has two important goals. On the one hand, it aims to reduce the size of the case-base. On the other hand, it has to improve the accuracy of the CBR system. CBM can be represented as a multi-objective optimization problem t... Read More about A multi-objective evolutionary algorithm fitness function for case-base maintenance..

Cold-start music recommendation using a hybrid representation. (2012)
Presentation / Conference
HORSBURGH, B., CRAW, S. and MASSIE, S. 2012. Cold-start music recommendation using a hybrid representation. Presented at the 3rd Annual digital economy 'all hands' conference (Digital Futures 2012), 23-25 October 2012, Aberdeen, UK.

Digital music systems are a new and exciting way to dis- cover, share, and listen to new music. Their success is so great, that digital downloads are now included alongside tra- ditional record sales in many o cial music charts [10]. In the past list...
