Note: the bulk of this code was written in a very short space of time with the intention of getting a working system up and running very quickly (see our working diary to see how it was developed and some of the problems encountered). Since then it has been refined a little bit, but it is still very rough. The source code here is more for those who are curious about implementation details rather than those who want to download and run the code — that's possible too, but will probably require some hard work and lots of path modifications in the code.
For the installation we also used:
As noted above, the code in its current state is probably only useful for those curious about implementation details. We hope to work on a new web-based version with the ability to customise news sources to use for recommendations. In the meantime the instruction below are only for downloading the code.
