Multimedia Retrieval for Recommending Systems: Near2me

Near2me is a travel recommender concept that generates recommendations based on multimedia retrieval algorithms. Near2me sought to provide “authentic” recommendations by making use of users photos on Flickr. I co-led the user evaluation of the prototype as part of the Petamedia network of excellence. The design was envisioned by Luz Caballero and co-evaluated by Valentina Occhialini.
