Abstract

Studies have shown that contextual settings play an important role in users' decision processes of what to consume, but data supporting the investigation of context-aware recommender systems are scarce. In this paper we present a TV consumption dataset enriched with contextual information of viewing situations. The dataset is designed for studying the intrinsic complexity of TV watching activities, and hence we also evaluate the performance of predicting chosen genres given contextual settings, and compare the results to contextless predictions. The results suggest a significant improvement by including contextual features in the prediction.
