Recently, though there are a lot of techniques to rank information there are few studies on how to rank users and thus help to form online communities. We propose the use of a system to recommend the user by analyzing his or her interests, and using Conceptual Fuzzy Sets to expand a query. We show the effectiveness of using Conceptual Fuzzy Sets for recommending users. This can be applied to forming communities.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
