Semantic portable user profiles and recommendations

The aim of this service is to support the creation and utilisation of semantic portable user profiles that can be used in multiple services with the user in control. Users can be offered relevant content in different services with the help of the profile. Additionally service providers and advertisers can get insights into their audience for developing their services further. The profile service uses Linked Data in creating semantic user profiles for attaching metadata to users' interests, and enriching content metadata. Semantic portable profiles have been tested in different cases such as recommending events, magazine articles and services. The demo can be found at http://profile.vtt.fi and video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKCse-ZKdXk
