Tourist Attraction Recommendation Service: An Approach, Architecture and Case Study

Alexander Smirnov, Andrew Ponomarev, Alexey Kashevnik

Abstract

The paper proposes a complex multi-model approach to recommendation systems design in the domain of tourist information support. Specifically, it proposes to construct a recommendation system as a composition of loosely coupled modules, implementing both personalized and non-personalized methods of recommendations and a coordination module responsible for adaptation of the whole system to the specific tourist and situation context.
