Abstract

Top-k processing is a well-studied problem with numerous applications that is becoming increasingly relevant with the growing availability of recommendation systems and decision making software on PCs, PDAs and smart-phones. The objective of this seminar is twofold. First, we will delve into the geometric aspects of top-k processing. Second, we will cover complementary features to top-k queries that have a strong geometric nature. The seminar will close with insights in the effect of dimensionality on the meaningfulness of top-k queries, and interesting similarities to nearest neighbor search.
