We enhance a tourist trip planning framework based on orienteering with category constraints by adding social sensing. This allows us to customize a user's experience without putting the burden of preference elicitation on the user. We identify the interests of a user by analyzing their Tweets and then match these interests to descriptions of points of interests. For this analysis we adapt different schemes for social sensing to the needs of our orienteering context and compare them to find the most suitable approach. We show that our technique is fast enough for use in real-time dynamic settings and also has a higher accuracy compared to previous approaches. Additionally, we integrate a more efficient algorithm for solving the orienteering problem, boosting the overall performance and utility of our framework further, as demonstrated by the positive user satisfaction received by real users.

Abstract

We enhance a tourist trip planning framework based on orienteering with category constraints by adding social sensing. This allows us to customize a user's experience without putting the burden of preference elicitation on the user. We identify the interests of a user by analyzing their Tweets and then match these interests to descriptions of points of interests. For this analysis we adapt different schemes for social sensing to the needs of our orienteering context and compare them to find the most suitable approach. We show that our technique is fast enough for use in real-time dynamic settings and also has a higher accuracy compared to previous approaches. Additionally, we integrate a more efficient algorithm for solving the orienteering problem, boosting the overall performance and utility of our framework further, as demonstrated by the positive user satisfaction received by real users.
