Overview

The MyMedia recommender system is designed to provide personalised recommendations about programmes. These recommendations should improve as you teach the system what you like or dislike by rating programmes.

Please note that the TV programmes that will be recommended were first broadcast in May 2008 and there are no radio programmes.

Finding programmes

The interface has a number of tabs that allow you to select the type of programme that will be recommended.

  • for recommendations from all available TV programmes click on the "TV" tab
  • for recommendations of programmes with a specific genre click on the "Genres" tab.
  • for recommendations of programmes with a specific format click on the "Formats" tab.
  • for recommendations of programmes that suit a particular mood click on the "Moods" tab.
  • for recommendations of programmes that suit a particular age group click on the "Ages" tab.

Rating programmes

Whenever the recommender suggests a programme it predicts your personal rating and shows this using blue circles. You can submit an actual rating by clicking on the blue circles. Your actual ratings are shown as yellow stars.

"My Profile" tab

On the "My Profile" tab you can give the MyMedia recommender system additional information to help improve the recommendations.
