information filtering is to make recommendation decisions for a specific user
based on the judgments of users with similar interests. It is an extremely useful technique for
information filtering when the content of objects is difficult to analyze. An exa
mple is image
retrieval. Due to the semantic gap between the low
level image features and the high
concepts, it is usually difficult, if not impossible, to identify images that are content wise
similar. Image retrieval based on collaborative judgmen
ts has shown dramatic improvement
compared to content
based image retrieval. Collaborative filtering has broad applications,
ranging from text classification, spam filters, recommender systems, automatic user
modeling, to multimedia retrieval.

In this tal
k, I will focus on the application of machine learning approaches to collaborative
filtering. Machine learning is advantageous to other approaches for collaborative filtering in
handling the diversity and the irregularity of users' interests. Its advantage
s have become
more evident when the amount of users' judgments is large. Throughout this talk, I will
discuss my recent work on applying graphic models, active learning, and co
algorithms to the fundamental challenges in collaborative filtering.
