Our implementation of a head-tracking algorithm, based on the Lucas-Kanade optical flow algorithm (henceforth referred to as LK-Tracker), as described by Vámossy, Tóth and Hirschberg (2004), avoids any specialized hardware. The system 26 F. Loewenich and F. Maire / A Head-Tracker Based on the Lucas-Kanade Optical Flow Algorithm instead relies on a common web camera device, making the technology easily available to all computer users at low cost. The remainder of this paper discusses available assistive technologies for users with a disability in Section 1.

Conclusion In this paper we present a distributed recommender system model that is based on the contract net protocol [11,12]. Within the proposed model, recommender system peers from different organizations are considered as self-interested peers. In each round of recommendation making, the peer that receives recommendation request from the user is regarded as a manger agent, and the other peers that receive request from the manager agent are considered as contractor agent (a recommender peer can play both manager or contractor roles, but within one recommendation making round, they can only play one role.

Supply ratings to the recommendations. 9. Based on the user rating, evaluate the performance of the peers and update the peers profiles. 10. Feedback and reward peers based on their performances on the task. 11. Based on the feedback update the manage agent’s profile. From Figure 1, it can be seen that when a recommender peer is requested to make a recommendation for a user, it acts as a manager agent. In the role of a manager agent, the recommender first generates a strategy about how and what to recommend to the user based on the user’s profile and request, then chooses a set of recommender peers (in this context, they act as contractor agents) based on the strategy and the profiles of peer recommenders, and makes requests for recommendations to these selected recommender peers.
