Reciprocal recommender is a class of recommender system that involves people as both subjects and objects of the recommendation process.
Some examples of domains where such recommenders are applied are:
- job recommendation,
- people recommendation on social networks,
- mentor-mentee matching, and
- online dating.
The research on reciprocal recommenders carried out at the CHAI research group strongly focuses on data mining and personalisation techniques in order to find people’s preferences and ultimately to satisfy both users in a reciprocal match.
The reciprocal recommender project is funded by the Smart Services CRC.
