Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4252)


This paper presents a consensus-based algorithm for resolving inconsistency in Web-based recommendation systems. In such systems it is possible that a user have his own usage path (the way of usage of the system) and system can recommend individual usage path for new user. The problem of determining a new path for a new user is the subject of this paper. An algorithm for solving this problem will be described below and some results of the experiments with this algorithm will be presented.
