2. Bookmark-tagging and People-tagging Digital Enterprise Research Institute todonlp friendlymusicresearchtechnician 3. Motivation Digital Enterprise Research Understand better how people tag each other A starting point for tag recommendation in frameworks based on people-tagging Access control mechanisms Information filtering mechanisms We are especially interested in subjectivity of tags 4. Main questions Digital Enterprise Research How do tags differ for resources of different categories? (person, event, country and city) How do tags for Wikipedia pages about persons differ from tags for friends? How do tags differ with age, gender of taggee? 5. Data collection Digital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ie1.Bookmark tagsWikipedia articles: Person, Event, Country, City 6.

Distribution of tags Digital Enterprise Research Institute 11. Subjectivity of tags Digital Enterprise Research Institute Top 100 tags for each category 25 annotators each categorised 100 tags Objective e.g. london Subjective e.g. jealous Uncategorised e.g. abcxyz Average inter-annotator agreement: 86% 12. subjective objective uncategorized Digital Enterprise Research Institute www.deri.ieFriend Person Country City Event 13. Randomly selected tags Digital Enterprise Research Before we looked at top tags, but what about long-tail tags? We also asked annotators to categorise 100 randomly chosen tags from each group Much higher rate of uncategorised (~3x) Lower inter-annotator agreement (76%) Less clear a meaning than the top tags, so probably less useful for applications like information filtering 14. Linguistic categories Digital Enterprise Research Institute Automatic classification (WordNet) Noun/verb/adjective/adverb/uncategorised 15. Digital Enterprise Research Institute Adjective Adverb Verb Noun Uncategorised 16. Age and gender of taggees Digital Enterprise Research Generated sets of tags corresponding to ages brackets and genders Removed tags that refer to a specific gender Asked 10 participants if they could predict age and gender Results: Differences between gender were not perceptible Differences between younger and older were perceptible (and younger were more subjective) 17. Conclusions Digital Enterprise Research Subjectivity: Articles of different categories are tagged similarly, but friends are assigned subjective tags more frequently Consequence: frameworks built on person- tags will need to handle more potentially unreliable tags Controlled vocabularies? Future work: Twitter Lists as person annotations for information filtering
