2 Aécio Solano Rodrigues Santos Brazil Master Student in Computer Science Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) Computer Science Department Laboratory for Treating Information (LATIN) Recommender Systems Information Retrieval

3 Web Search Engine: Web Crawling, Indexing, Query Processing... Web Crawler is a software that automatically discovers Web pages and downloads those into a local repository Given resources are limited, it is not possible to download all pages Web Crawl Scheduling: What pages should be downloaded first? When a page should be updated?

5 I am currently involved with the generation of useful movie recommendations for users. In my research, I investigate a bayesian probabilistical framework that takes into account: l The fact that, in a recommended movie list, the utility of movies interfere with one another; l the fact that a recommended movie list should maximize the probability of having at least one item that is actually selected by an user; l the fact that the recommended movie list should cover, as much as possible, all different hues present in a particular user tastes. I am currently mining ratings patterns at the MovieLens datasets (

15 Title: Granular Neural Networks for Pattern Recognition and Granular Mining Classification and clustering of real life data sets, including microarray gene expression data, based on the proposed granular neural networks. A new fuzzy rough entropy measure for validating the clustering solutions is proposed by comparing the existing measures, Beta –index and DB-index. Future Work: - Proposing a new granular neural network for selecting salient features of real-life data sets.
