Abstract

With the merge of DTV and the exponential growth of broadcasting network, an overwhelmingly amount of information have become available at views’ homes. Therefore, it becomes increasingly challenging how consumers can receive the right amount of information at the right time for their entertainment needs. We proposed an electronic programming guide (EPG) recommender based on natural language processing techniques. Particularly, the recommender has been implemented as a service on a home network that facilitates the browsing and recommendation of TV programs on a portable remote device and such system is found to be feasible. Preliminary experiments have shown a precision of 81%.
