As more users are joining these online consumer and entertainment sectors, the profile-based data for providing accurate just-intime recommendations is rising thanks to strategies based on collaborative filtering or content-based metrics. However, these systems merely focus on providing the right item for the users without taking into account what would be the best strategy to suggest the movie, the product or the song (i.e. the strategy to increase the success or impact of the recommendation). Taking this research gap into consideration, this paper proposes a profile-based recommendation system that outputs a set of potential persuasive strategies that can be used with users with similar characteristics. The case study presented provides tailored persuasive strategies to make office-based employees enhance the energy efficiency at work (the dataset used on this research is specific of this sector). Throughout the paper, shreds of evidence are reported assessing the validity of the proposed system. Specifically, two approaches are compared: a profile-based recommendation system (RS) vs. the same RS enriched by adding an ensemble with an active learning model. The results shed light on not only providing effective mechanisms to increase the success of the recommendations but also alleviating the cold start problem when newcomers arrive.}, language = {en}, urldate = {2020-03-24}, journal = {Personal and Ubiquitous Computing}, author = {S\xe1nchez-Corcuera, Rub\xe9n and Casado-Mansilla, Diego and Borges, Cruz E. and L\xf3pez-de-Ipi\xf1a, Diego}, month = mar, year = {2020}, keywords = {IF1.735, Persuasive Technology, Q3, Recsys, cold-user problem, preference recommendation, sentientthings, user profiling} }']

The paradigm of Smart Cities arises as a response to the goal of creating the city of the future, where (1) the well-being and rights of their citizens are guaranteed, (2) industry and (3) urban planning is assessed from an environmental and sustainable viewpoint. Smart Cities still face some challenges in their implementation, but gradually more research projects of Smart Cities are funded and executed. Moreover, cities from all around the globe are implementing Smart City features to improve services or the quality of life of their citizens. Through this article, (1) we go through various definitions of Smart Cities in the literature, (2) we review the technologies and methodologies used nowadays, (3) we summarise the different domains of applications where these technologies and methodologies are applied (e.g. health and education), (4) we show the cities that have integrated the Smart City paradigm in their daily functioning and (5) we provide a review of the open research challenges. Finally, we discuss about the future opportunities for Smart Cities and the issues that must be tackled in order to move towards the cities of the future.}, language = {en}, number = {6}, urldate = {2019-06-10}, journal = {International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks}, author = {S\xe1nchez-Corcuera, Ruben and Nu\xf1ez-Marcos, Adri\xe1n and Sesma-Solance, Jesus and Bilbao-Jayo, Aritz and Mulero, Rub\xe9n and Zulaika, Unai and Azkune, Gorka and Almeida, Aitor}, month = jun, year = {2019}, keywords = {IF1.151, IoT, Q4, Survey, architecture, co-creation, e-government, futuraal, smart cities}, pages = {1550147719853984} }']
