Agent & MyEar
The MyEar music recommender enables users to listen to personalized podcasting feeds. MyEar is also realized with the aid of the Personal Reader Framework and provides a Personalization Service which searches the web for podcasting feeds that go with the users taste in music and combines items of this feed to produce a personalized podcasting feed. In a slightly other way the MyEar Personalization Service is used by the MyNews application which aims the creation of personalized news feeds.
Personal Reader Agent
The Personal Reader Agent is a portal to Personal Reader infrastructures. It discovers Personalization Services and based on their semantic description it provides a user interface which enables users to configure and call these services. Made configurations of those arbitrary services can be shared and re-used. Personalization functionalities, like reuse of stored configurations of services which suit the users interests, result in an adaptive, personal Agent.
