Mining Approach for Discovering Similar Mobile Users

"Discovering similar users with respect to their habits plays an important role in a wide range of applications, such as collaborative filtering for recommendation, user segmentation for market analysis, etc. Recently, the progressing ability to sense user contexts of smart mobile devices makes it possible to discover mobile users with similar habits by mining their habits from their mobile devices. However, though ome researchers have proposed effective methods for mining user habits such as behavior pattern mining, how to leverage the mined results for discovering similar users remains less explored. To this end, we propose a novel approach for conquering the sparseness of behavior pattern space and thus make it possible to discover similar mobile users with respect to their habits by leveraging behavior pattern mining." - an interesting article from WWW-2012

Btw, we do the similar things with our SpotEx approach
