Personalising the Editorial Mix for a Digital Newspaper Using Constraint Programming

Michael Lunĝe

AbstractThis paper proposes a Constraint Programming approach to personalise a composition of articles that follows rules of the editorial mix in a digital newspaper. Inspiration from conventional newspapers will be used to express the problem as a Constraint Optimisation Problem and solved using local search for Constraint Programming taking advantage of both probabilistic and logical approaches. Furthermore, this paper proposes a keyword based solution, using WordNet enrichment of articles in combination with a comparison of entities, to determine the relevance of an article to a user defined topic and similarity between articles. As a by-product of the implementation a library for solving personalisation problems using Constraint
Programming was developed.
