Extracting user profiles from large scale data

Abstract

In this work we present the details of a large scale user profiling framework that we developed here in IBM on top of Apache Hadoop. We address the problem of extracting and maintaining a very large number of user profiles from large scale data. We first describe an efficient user profiling framework with high user profiling quality guarantees. We then describe a scalable implementation of the proposed framework in Apache Hadoop and discuss its challenges.
