Mining Social Tags to Predict Mashup Patterns
MetadataShow full item record
In this thesis, a tag-based approach is proposed for predicting mashup patterns, thus deriving inspiration for potential new mashups from the communityâ s consensus. The proposed approach applies association rule mining techniques to discover relationships between APIs and mashups based on their annotated tags. The importance of the mined relationships is advocated as a valuable source for recommending mashup candidates while mitigating common problems in recommender systems. The proposed methodology is evaluated through experimentation using a real-life dataset. Results show that the proposed mining approach achieves prediction accuracy with 60% precision and 79% recall improvement over a direct string matching approach that lacks the mining information.
