Abstract

In this paper we present the evaluation of PeRSSonal, a system which generates personalized, dynamically created RSS feeds and is focalized on small screen devices. PeRSSonal is a complete system able to consolidate news from major news portals, categorize and summarize them, and finally syndicate them personalized to the end users. In an era where news feeds, become a part of the daily Internet life and small screen devices gain more and more attention by the end users, PeRSSonal seems the panacea that could provide fast and easy access to everyday news. The system is based on algorithms that incorporate the user into the categorization and summarization procedure of news articles, while the results are presented to the user according to his/her interests and end device.
