The Discoverability Problem: How To Get Out of the Filter Bubble Recommendation Systems?

The Discoverability Problem: How To Get Out of the Filter Bubble Recommendation Systems? | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

IdeaEncore:  Discovering what people 'like me' are doing is one way to discover new content. But, it all comes down to how we define "like me".   For a professional knowledge sharing site, like IdeaEncore, it might be topic of interest or sub-sector or functional role or experience level.  But the most interesting, breakthroughs happen when we *cross* these traditional boundaries and explore solutions in adjacent or even completely different realms.  So maybe the 'like me' algorithms don't have it right.  Maybe the 'trick' to to discover by 'problems like mine' 

 

 

Robin Good: Brett Sandusky attacks the "discovery" topic with simple, straight logic, analyzing what all the new startups and the new tech fanatics seem to systematically look over.

 

How can you help me discover new stuff, if you are intentionally limiting your exploratory gathering to algorithms and to, however varied, network of contacts?

 

She writes: "The discoverability problem in books is a challenge. It’s about connecting users to new and interesting titles, that they wouldn’t normally have seen. This last part bears repeating: …that they wouldn’t normally have seen.

 

Ultimately, the problem with all these discoverability sites is this: their algorithms (if they are even using an algorithm) are based on aggregate data in a one size fits all model.

 

The more people who read something, the more often it shows up in your recommendations. But, that’s not discoverability. That’s the NYT bestseller list. That’s Nielsen Bookscan telling you the top sales of the week.

 

Just because most of my friends are reading bestsellers (because, duh, whose aren’t? In fact, that seems to just reinforce the concept of the term “bestseller”) does that mean I should only be shown these titles?

 

Obviously, the answer is no. But, how do we get there?"

 

The answer is that we need a) more expert and qualified human intervention to unearth and pick new stuff, and b) behavioral data coupled with data collected on customer preference to allows us to connect those selected materials to the users in the system.

 

 

Rightful. Timely. 8/10

Too bad that it is only in Russian, as I can't make much sense of whether there is real value in there or not. Or is it there a western language edition?
RPattinson-Daily's comment, October 14, 2012 8:20 AM
Robin Good, thank You for attention to my comment. Unfortunately, due to crisis of 2008 plans of creation its western language edition were terminated. However, concept, technologies, business model of such recommendation service for creative goods (books, movies, music) were described in book “The Economics of Symbolic Exchange” by Alexander Dolgin (2006) (http://www.amazon.com/Economics-Symbolic-Exchange-Alexander-Dolgin/dp/354079882X). I was content curator, market researcher and editor of this book.
It can be read by parts/chapters depending on interest (see its Contents in Amazon). For example, chapter 1.3 about consumer navigation in creative industry such as online music market, ch.2.7 – survey of recommender systems. The music industry was first where recommendation systems based on collaborative filtering were implemented (for example Last.Fm, and many others). How well they are working you may check out for music – Last.Fm (www.last.fm), for movies – Netflix (www.netflix.com).

Knowledgeheimer

Knowledgeheimer | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

"I’m reluctant to “one size fits all” when it comes to knowledge management. I believe in the individuality of each organization and believe that a keyword for the future of knowledge management is “creativity”.

 

Approaches will have to be creative, even if they are based on similar tools: databases, networking platforms, expertise location, or collaboration systems for communities of practice.

 

Knowledgeheimer is already the most common form of organisational dysfunction and, if not treated properly, worsens as it progresses, eventually leading to death. As we become more and more knowledge-driven societies, its incidence is increasing from year to year."

Information Wants to Be Shared

Information Wants to Be Shared | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

Joshua Gans from Rotman School of Management - @joshgans (on Twitter) - has written a new and interesting book: "Information wants to be free." 

 

Using the tools and logic of information economics, Gans shows how sharing enhances most information’s value. He also shows how the business models of traditional media companies, gatekeepers who have relied on scarcity and control, have collapsed in the face of new technologies. Equally important, he argues that sharing can revive moribund, threatened industries even as he examines platforms that have, almost accidentally, thrived in this new environment.

 

I've just downloaded it from Amazon for $4,39, which is good value for your money.

TheWorkSocial - Home - Personal Knowledge Management: Don’t Be Afraid to Delete Your Info Dump | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

"I’m an information hoarder.

 

Simply put, I acquire far more knowledge than I can consume. More books, articles, pamphlets, links, tweets, blog posts, and infographics than I will ever have time to properly, as Harold Jarche explains, seek, sense, and share.

 

In response I did something I didn’t think I ever would: I deleted all the Kindle files. It felt really good. I reasoned that if I hadn’t read or used an article yet, I will likely find a successor in the future. Good information gets cited in blogs over and over again. That’s why your connections are more important than the information itself."

Algorithms Can Help Curators Pre-Filter, Discover and Learn From Like-Minded Colleagues

Algorithms Can Help Curators Pre-Filter, Discover and Learn From Like-Minded Colleagues | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

 

Scott:  Point #1 below is exactly why I use Scoop.it and follow Robin. Thank you!

 

Robin Good: Alexis Dufresne of Faveeo, an up and coming information filtering and discovery tool not yet available to the general public, has been posting some interesting articles on topics related to news curation, filtering and discovery.

 

In particular, I found interesting his recent analysis on automated solutions and algorithms designed to help scale curation efforts, as these are generally discarded as inappropriate for any type of professional work. But, as he rightly points out, there are several tasks inside a curator workflow that can indeed help and reduce the curator's workload without limiting his ability to manually select and edit what he finds most appropriate.

Alexis pinpoints at least three different areas in which algorithms and automated operations can indeed greatly help the curator's work. These are:

 

1) Discovery of new sources and networks: ...By teaching a machine about the kind of sources and users a curator is looking for, a machine could process from the incredible mass of sources and people out there to figure out those who are likely to be trusted sources of information. By using techniques of text analysis, social reach, semantic density, popularity and more, this task could be done by a machine.

 

2) Learning the profile of a curator: A lot of engines are focusing on filtering the semantic meaning of an article in order to recommend other content. But by using advanced NLP techniques and text extraction methods, we could go further and have an idea of the tone, the lenght and other signals that can indicate the preferences of a human curator, other than simply the actual keywords used in the text.

 

3) Social recommendations: ...By detecting users that seem to click, like, share or save the same articles, we can connect them together to mutualize their search and discovery operations, in order to speed things up.

 

Rightful. Helpful. 8/10

If there’s one thing that Richard Branson clearly has in abundance, it’s get up and go. You need only look at his travel schedule for this week (Haiti, Warsaw, Cairo, Mumbai and Delhi – honest!) to realise that productivity has played a large part in his and Virgin’s success over the years.

 

With this in mind Rob Rawson from Biz 3.0 has managed to crack his secrets to productivity into six key areas. It certainly makes for some interesting reading, have a look and see if there’s something which you can pick up:...

What is learning’s role? | Harold Jarche

What is learning’s role? | Harold Jarche | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

" By aligning the use of technology with business needs in this way, learning leaders are demonstrating the strategic contribution to the organization that the executive suite wants to see. Failing to grasp the opportunity at this inflection point in business operations has a grim prospect. Folks know they can learn on their own and together.

 

If learning leaders don’t get in and facilitate the full learning spectrum, it will happen without them. Then, just what is learning’s role?"

 

"First of all, in the network era, a coherent organization is one in which learning is no longer a specialty. Much as writing was no longer a specialty when the majority of workers became literate, learning today is more than putting an X in a checkbox. Work is learning and learning is the work. I may have said this many times before but it is the essential change in how we must view knowledge-intensive and creative work in a networked environment."

conversation matters: The Three Eras of Knowledge Management

conversation matters: The Three Eras of Knowledge Management | KnowledgeManagement | Scoop.it

"In this video I describe the Three Eras of knowledge management that I have previously written about on this blog, Where Knowledge Management has Been and Where it is Going – Part One, Part Two, and Part Three.

 

My understanding about the third era continues to grow so I have elaborated the third era in this post. In the earlier blog post I called the third era, “collective knowledge” and I remain convinced that collective knowledge is at the heart of this change. It is the "means," but what is being managed are ideas. So I am using “Idea Management" as the label for the third era both in this video and in the accompanying chart.

 

The first two eras, Information Management and Experience Management dealt with existing knowledge, that is, knowledge that an individual or a group has gained and is available to be shared with others. The third era is about the creation or development of ideas that have not existed before."
