A Flexible Rule-Based Method for Interlinking, Integrating, and Enriching User Data
Many Web applications provide personalized and adapted services and contents to their users. As these Web applications are becoming increasingly connected, a new interesting challenge in their engineering is to allow the Web applications to exchange, reuse, integrate, interlink, and enrich their data and user models, hence, to allow for user modeling and personalization across application boundaries. In this paper, we present the Grapple User Modeling Framework (GUMF) that facilitates the brokerage of user profile information and user model representations. We show how the existing GUMF is extended with a new method that is based on configurable derivation rules that guide a new knowledge deduction process. Using our method, it is possible not only to integrate data from GUMF dataspaces, but also to incorporate and reuse RDF data published as Linked Data on the Web. Therefore, we introduce the so-called Grapple Derivation Rule (GDR) language as well as the corresponding GDR Engine. Fur...
