(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'ASSOCIATION D'UTILISATEURS AYANT DES INTÉRÊTS SIMILAIRES
Abstract:
(EN) Matching users with similar interests is disclosed, including: obtaining, from an external source, items of interest as indicated by a plurality of users; storing information about the plurality of users and their respective items of interest; and identifying, for a first user of the plurality of users, a set of similar users who have overlapping interests as the first user, wherein the overlapping interests are determined based at least in part on items of interest to the first user and items of interest to the plurality of users.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé d'association d'utilisateurs ayant des intérêts similaires, ledit procédé consistant à : obtenir, d'une source externe, des articles d'intérêt lorsqu'ils sont indiqués par une pluralité d'utilisateurs ; stocker des informations sur la pluralité d'utilisateurs et sur leurs articles d'intérêt respectifs ; et identifier, pour un premier utilisateur de la pluralité d'utilisateurs, un ensemble d'utilisateurs similaires qui ont des intérêts se recoupant avec ceux du premier utilisateur, les intérêts se recoupant étant déterminés sur la base au moins en partie des articles d'intérêt du premier utilisateur et des articles d'intérêt de la pluralité d'utilisateurs.
