A. Farseev, I. Samborskii, A. Filchenkov, and T.-S. Chua. Cross-Domain Recommendation via Clustering on Multi-Layer Graphs 40th International ACM SIGIR Conference on Research and Development in Information Retrieval (SIGIR'17), August 7-11, 2017. 17 January 2019

Venue category recommendation is an essential application for the tourism and advertisement industries, wherein it may suggest attractive localities within close proximity to users’ current location. Considering that many adults use more than three social networks simultaneously, it is reasonable to leverage on this rapidly growing multi-source social media data to boost venue recommendation performance. Another approach to achieve higher recommendation results is to utilize group knowledge, which is able to diversify recommendation output. Taking into account these two aspects, we introduce a novel cross-network collaborative recommendation framework C 3R, which utilizes both individual and group knowledge, while being trained on data from multiple social media sources. Group knowledge is derived based on new crosssource user community detection approach, which utilizes both inter-source relationship and the ability of sources to complement each other. To fully utilize multi-source multi-view data, we process user-generated content by employing state-of-the-art text, image, and location processing techniques. Our experimental results demonstrate the superiority of our multi-source framework over state-of-the-art baselines and different data source combinations. In addition, we suggest a new approach for automatic construction of inter-network relationship graph based on the data, which eliminates the necessity of having pre-defined domain knowledge

12 Industries And Focuses Set To Be Revolutionized By Quantum Computing 30 September 2022

How fast is quantum computing? By some estimates, quantum computers may be 158 million times faster than the fastest current supercomputer. Many of us may think such power is destined to be a tool used solely for complex scientific calculations, but it may soon play a significant role in functions and industries that impact our everyday lives. Further, while quantum technology could play a tremendous role in improving everything from human health to energy exploration, in unscrupulous hands, our increasingly digital work and personal lives could be at added risk.

Tech experts are clear: The time to prepare for the impacts of quantum computing (both good and bad) is now. Below, 12 members of Forbes Technology Council discuss some of the industries and focuses that could soon be revolutionized by quantum computing.
