Paper Title:
Mashups for Semantic User Profiles


  • Riddhiman Ghosh(Hewlett-Packard Laboratories)
  • Mohamed Dekhil(Hewlett-Packard Laboratories)

In this paper, we discuss challenges and provide solutions for capturing and maintaining accurate models of user profiles using semantic web technologies, by aggregating and sharing distributed fragments of user profile information spread over multiple services. Our framework for profile management allows for evolvable, extensible and expressive user profiles. We have implemented a prototype, targeting the retail domain, on the HP Labs Retail Store Assistant.
