TopicSensitive PageRank
, 2002
"... In the original PageRank algorithm for improving the ranking of searchquery results, a single PageRank vector is computed, using the link structure of the Web, to capture the relative "importance" of Web pages, independent of any particular search query. To yield more accurate search resu ..."

An Efficient Boosting Algorithm for Combining Preferences
, 1999
"... The problem of combining preferences arises in several applications, such as combining the results of different search engines. This work describes an efficient algorithm for combining multiple preferences. We first give a formal framework for the problem. We then describe and analyze a new boosting ..."

boosting algorithm for combining preferences called RankBoost. We also describe an efficient implementation of the algorithm for certain natural cases. We discuss two experiments we carried out to assess the performance of RankBoost. In the first experiment, we used the algorithm to combine different WWW
Rank Aggregation Methods for the Web
, 2010
"... We consider the problem of combining ranking results from various sources. In the context of the Web, the main applications include building metasearch engines, combining ranking functions, selecting documents based on multiple criteria, and improving search precision through word associations. Wed ..."

Learning to rank using gradient descent
 In ICML
, 2005
"... We investigate using gradient descent methods for learning ranking functions; we propose a simple probabilistic cost function, and we introduce RankNet, an implementation of these ideas using a neural network to model the underlying ranking function. We present test results on toy data and on data f ..."

UCPOP: A Sound, Complete, Partial Order Planner for ADL
, 1992
"... We describe the ucpop partial order planning algorithm which handles a subset of Pednault's ADL action representation. In particular, ucpop operates with actions that have conditional effects, universally quantified preconditions and effects, and with universally quantified goals. We prove ucpo ..."

Feeling and thinking: Preferences need no inferences
 American Psychologist
, 1980
"... ABSTRACT: Affect is considered by most contemporary theories to be postcognitive, that is, to occur only after considerable cognitive operations have been accomplished. Yet a number of experimental results on preferences, attitudes, impression formation, and de_ cision making, as well as some cli ..."

Preference Parameters And Behavioral Heterogeneity: An Experimental Approach In The Health And Retirement Study
, 1997
"... This paper reports measures of preference parameters relating to risk tolerance, time preference, and intertemporal substitution. These measures are based on survey responses to hypothetical situations constructed using an economic theorist's concept of the underlying parameters. The individual ..."

Labor Contracts as Partial Gift Exchange
 Quarterly Journal of Economics
, 1982
"... This paper explains involuntary unemployment in terms of the response of firms to workers ' group behavior. Workers ' effort depends upon the norms determining a fair day's work. In order to affect those norms, firms may pay more than the marketclearing wage. Industries that pay cons ..."

This paper explains involuntary unemployment in terms of the response of firms to workers ' group behavior. Workers ' effort depends upon the norms determining a fair day's work. In order to affect those norms, firms may pay more than the marketclearing wage. Industries that pay consistently more than the marketclearing wage are primary, and those that pay only the marketclearing wage are secondary. Thus, this paper also gives a theory for division of labor markets between primary and secondary. I.

Exact Matrix Completion via Convex Optimization
, 2008

Suppose that we observe m entries selected uniformly at random from a matrix M. Can we complete the matrix and recover the entries that we have not seen? We show that one can perfe ..."
