Abstract [en]

The accuracy of recommender systems has been largely discussed and the user experience of the recommended systems is now becoming a new focus. Combining recommendations with information visualization (InfoVis) can be a way to improve the acceptance of the system. This thesis investigates how InfoVis can support the recommended systems, aiming at improving the enjoyment and engagement of the user experience. Three prototypes are designed to evaluate the impact of using InfoVis and fluid interactive InfoVis on user engagement and enjoyment with exploratory of recommended books. The methods of product reaction card and Likert questionnaire are used during the evaluation. Results suggest that InfoVis is a viable way to improve the engagement and enjoyment of the book recommended system and it should be further researched. 

Abstract [sv]

Precisionen för rekommenderingssystem har diskuterats i hög grad och användarupplevelsen för rekommenderingssystem har nu blivit ett nytt fokus. Att kombinera rekommendationer med informationsvisualisering (InfoVis) är ett möjligt vis att förbättra systemets acceptans.

Denna rapport undersöker hur informationsvisualisering kan kompletterarekommenderingssystemen, med fokus på att förbättra användarglädjen och engagemanget i användarupplevelsen. Tre prototyper designas i syfte att evaluera påverkan som InfoVis, och fluid interactive InfoVis, har på engagemang och användarglädje i och med exploration av rekommenderade böcker. Produktreaktionskort och Likertfrågeformulär användes under evalueringen. Resultaten indikerar att InfoVis är en möjlig lösning för att förbättra engagemang och användargläjde i samband med bokrekommendationer, och att det bör undersökasytterligare.
