Workshop on Surprise, Opposition, and Obstruction in Adaptive and Personalized Systems (SOAP)

Current recommender systems leave a lot to be desired in terms of making suggestions that are out of the ordinary, inspiring and breaking new ground. This workshop, to be held in conjunction with the UMAP conference in Halifax on July 13-17, explores new approaches to designing recommender systems that can create suggestions which are unexpected and inspiring for the user. I have the privilege to be part of the Program Committee for this workshop.
