Ein mir bisher unbekanntes Format names Hidden Heroes mit einem Porträt der Forscherin Pattie Maes, die mit Social Collaborative Filtering die Basis-Technik für alle Arten von Empfehlungsdiensten („wer dies mag, mag auch das“) gelegt hat. 1994.
HOMR was one of a number of related projects that emerged in the early-to-mid-90s out of the MIT lab of the Belgian-born computer scientist Pattie Maes, projects that eventually culminated in a company that Maes co-founded, called Firefly. HOMR pulled off a trick that was genuinely unprecedented at the time: it could make surprisingly sophisticated recommendations of music that you might like. It seemed to be capable of learning something about you as an individual. Unlike just about everything else on the Web back then, HOMR’s pages were not one-size-fits all. They suggested, perhaps for the first time, that this medium was capable of conveying personalized information.INTELLIGENT AGENT. HOW PATTIE MAES ALMOST INVENTED SOCIAL MEDIA
