Normally web services are classified by the quality of services; however, the term quality is not absolute and defined relatively. The quality of web services is measured or derived using various parameters like reliability, scalability, flexibility, and availability. The limitation of the methods employing these parameters is that sometimes they are producing similar web services in recommendation lists. To address this research problem, the novel improved clustering-based web service recommendation method is proposed in this paper. This approach is mainly dealing with producing diversity in the results of web service recommendations. In this method, functional interest, quality of service (QoS) preference, and diversity features are combined to produce a unique recommendation list of web services to end-users. To produce the unique recommendation results, we propose a varied web service classification order that is clustering-based on web services’ functional relevance such as non-useful pertinence, recorded client intrigue importance, and potential client intrigue significance. Additionally, to further improve the performance of this approach, we designed web service graph construction, an algorithm of various widths clustering. This approach serves to enhance the exceptional quality, that is, the accuracy of web service recommendation outcomes. The performance of this method was implemented and evaluated against existing systems for precision, and f-score performance metrics, using the research datasets.
This paper aims at ensuring an efficient recommendation. It proposes a new context-aware semantic-based probabilistic situations injection and adaptation using an ontology approach and Bayesian-classifier. The idea is to predict the relevant situations for recommending the right services. Indeed, situations are correlated with the user’s context. It can, therefore, be considered in designing a recommendation approach to enhance the relevancy by reducing the execution time. The proposed solution in which four probability-based-context rule situation items (user’s location and time, user’s role, their preferences and experiences) are chosen as inputs to predict user’s situations. Subsequently, the weighted linear combination is applied to calculate the similarity of rule items. The higher scores between the selected items are used to identify the relevant user’s situations. Three context parameters (CPU speed, sensor availability and RAM size) of the current devices are used to ensure adaptive service recommendation. Experimental results show that the proposed approach enhances accuracy rate with a high number of situations rules. A comparison with existing recommendation approaches shows that the proposed approach is more efficient and decreases the execution time.
Networking is the use of physical links to connect individual isolated workstations or hosts together to form data links for the purpose of resource sharing and communication. In the field of web service application and consumer environment optimization, it has been shown that the introduction of network embedding methods can effectively alleviate the problems such as data sparsity in the recommendation process. However, existing network embedding methods mostly target a specific structure of network and do not collaborate with multiple relational networks from the root. Therefore, this paper proposes a service recommendation model based on the hybrid embedding of multiple networks and designs a multinetwork hybrid embedding recommendation algorithm. First, the user social relationship network and the user service heterogeneous information network are constructed; then, the embedding vectors of users and services in the same vector space are obtained through multinetwork hybrid embedding learning; finally, the representation vectors of users and services are applied to recommend services to target users. To verify the effectiveness of this paper’s method, a comparative analysis is conducted with a variety of representative service recommendation methods on three publicly available datasets, and the experimental results demonstrate that this paper’s multinetwork hybrid embedding method can effectively collaborate with multirelationship networks to improve service recommendation quality, in terms of recommendation efficiency and accuracy.
The research aims to deconstruct trust in beauty service into underlying latent variables with observable predictors. It further analyses the influence of these latent variables on the service recommendation behaviour of customers for beauty service. Factor reduction using EFA and structural equation modelling using CFA with AMOS 18 was applied on two samples of 214 and 225 respondents. The two latent constructs strongly representing trust were identified as “trust due to customer education” and “trust due to safety and hygiene.” These factors were found to play a significant role in service recommendation when it comes to beauty service.
IoT service recommendation techniques can help a user select appropriate IoT services efficiently. Aiming at improving the recommendation efficiency and preserving the data privacy, the locality-sensitive hashing (LSH) technique is adopted in service recommendation. However, existing LSH-based service recommendation methods ignore the intrinsic temporal feature of IoT services. In light of this challenge, we integrate the temporal feature into the conventional LSH-based method and present a time-aware approach with the capability of privacy preservation for IoT service recommendation across multiple platforms. Experiments on a real-world dataset are conducted to validate the advantage of our proposed approach in terms of accuracy and efficiency in recommendation.
Recently, the enormous advantages of cloud services make them increasingly appealing to the small and medium-sized enterprises. The growing number of available services makes it challenging to select trustworthy services. Existing approaches focus on user preferences to guide personalized services recommendation for individual users, but lack of the research on trustworthy service recommendation for the small and medium-sized enterprises that represents a group user consisting of multiple individual users. For this type of enterprise, the cloud services recommendation must address the challenges from the diverse client context of individual users, the imprecise quality of experience in an uncertain cloud environment and the invalid or unsatisfactory recommendations. A client context-aware approach is proposed to recommend trustworthy cloud services for the small and medium-sized enterprises based on non-compensatory multi-criteria decision-making. In it, a type of client context is viewed as an independent evaluation criterion, and the interval neutrosophic numbers are employed to measure the fuzzy trustworthiness of cloud services. Based on the investigated outranking relations of interval neutrosophic numbers, a non-compensatory multi-criteria decision-making procedure via an improved ELECTRE III method is developed to rank candidate services. Experimental results demonstrate that this approach could efficiently produces the accurate ranking results of cloud services and effectively recommend the trustworthy service for small and medium-sized enterprises.
