Title: PrefMiner: mining user's preferences for intelligent mobile notification management

Author: A. Mehrotra, R. Hendley, and M. Musolesi

Abstract : Mobile notifications are increasingly used by a variety of applications to inform users about events, news or just to send alerts and reminders to them. However, many notifications are neither useful nor relevant to users' interests and, also for this reason, they are considered disruptive and potentially annoying.
In this paper we present the design, implementation and evaluation of PrefMiner, a novel interruptibility management solution that learns users' preferences for receiving notifications based on automatic extraction of rules by mining their interaction with mobile phones. The goal is to build a system that is intelligible for users, i.e., not just a "black-box" solution. Rules are shown to users who might decide to accept or discard them at run-time. The design of PrefMiner is based on a large scale mobile notification dataset and its effectiveness is evaluated by means of an in-the-wild deployment.
