Part of the SpringerBriefs in Computer Science book series (BRIEFSCOMPUTER)


In this chapter, we introduce the basic concepts of contextual information and collaborative prediction. Then, we introduce the scenarios of context-aware collaborative prediction and point out some limitations of the conventional methods. Finally, we introduce the tasks of collaborative prediction, on which we will compare the performance of our methods and conventional methods.
