PRemiSEincorporating content information, collaborative filtering and information diffusion in virtual social network into probabilistic matrix factorization.Two problems in previous studiesthe aggregation of user preference, semanticitem profiles and preferences of the most influential experts.

Follow-consuming relationship: If user Ui accesses to or rates an item Vj after Ue within a predefined time-window, then Ui has a follow-consuming relationship with Ue. 7An illustrative example of implicit social network

8Building Implicit Social NetworkStep0Compute time span & number of visits for each itemStep1Plot the time span number of visits find the abnormal items remove itStep2Build the graphbased on user-item accessing historyif U1 access the same item V after U2and access_time(U1) access_time(U2) < time_window , we say in the graph , there is an directed edges from U2 to U1.Step3 : Normalized weights

Time_window:find enough neighbors for each userprecisely find the right experts

Empirical study on a real data set


10How probably the given user will follow the experts adoption on the same item?How probably any individual will follow the experts adoption on the same item?
