One of my research interests is semantic recommender systems which can be developed by integrating Semantic Web technologies into Web mining. Some data mining techniques can be used to discover and process data, and build knowledge bases in the recommender systems. The main goal of this research is often to personalize the built knowledge in order to meet Web user interests.

I am also interested in business intelligence applications which deal with the big data of user profile and transactions. Analysing user behaviour is usually taken into account of such applications.


Topics of:

  • Data mining (Data science)
  • Search engine, e.g., applications of book search, Web search like Google search.
  • Recommender systems, e.g., applications of movie recommender systems like YouTube, music recommender systems, product recommender systems like Amazon.
  • Expert systems, e.g., disease diagnosis system, chatbot.
  • Business intelligence, e.g., intelligent e-business/ e-commerce/ e-learning systems.
