Manipulation-resistant recommender systems
This project developed general techniques for the design of manipulation-resistant recommender systems, as well as specific solutions for applications in which such a recommender could have a significant impact.
One class of applications that this project studied involved Internet sites that utilized user-provided ratings or tags to recommend books, images, sites, or other products to users. Another application researchers focused on was the design of rating aggregation systems for selecting proposals, papers, or job candidates.
