An agent-based approach for privacy-preserving recommender systems
Recommender Systems are used in various domains to generate personalized information based on personal user data. The ability to preserve the privacy of all participants is an essential requirement of the underlying Information Filtering architectures, because the deployed Recommender Systems have to be accepted by privacy-aware users as well as information and service providers.
