Abstract:Todays cable and satellite systems provide a multitude of TV viewing choices for a user; making it difficult to select the best program to watch at any one time. Digital video recording and IPTV add even more options; allowing to time- and sometimes place-shift TV watching. CPTV is a system which generates a personalized viewing schedule for a user; integrated with his current calendar tools. The system is based on three main elements:

  • a rule based system to express viewing preferences;
  • a content-based recommender system to suggest films based on past viewing selections and information extracted from Wikipedia; and
  • a constraint-based scheduler which plans and schedules recording and viewing schedules around existing events and availability time periods of a user.

The application thus combines different AI methods in one Web-based application; and is implemented using the constraint logic programming system ECLiPSe.
