BBC MyMedia Field Trial Report
From Chris Newell
The MyMedia collaborative research project has ended with the publication of the final field trial reports.
The MyMedia website has all the project publications and trial results available.
This EC-funded project studied recommender systems, developing state-of-the-art recommender algorithms and a public source recommender system software framework. In the final year, the project ran four individual fields trials to evaluate the technology in different applications and environments.
In the BBC field trial the target application was web-based radio and TV catchup services. The BBC field trial report describes the implementation of the BBC trial, the analysis of the results and the conclusions that followed. MyMedia project partners were BBC R&D, BT Research, the European Microsoft Innovation Center, Microgénesis, Novay and the Universities of Eindhoven and Hildesheim.
