In Madrid there are more than 50 museums, almost 60 tourism monuments, more than 10.000 bars and restaurants and more than 50 cinemas. Actually, there are some web sites or applications where the user can search for this information, but it isn’t ordered by preferences. It’s possible that the user has to read a lot of descriptions or opinions to find something that he wants.

For these reasons, we developed Madrid Live Desktop. Madrid Live Desktop is a system that prepares a timetable with diferent activities in Madrid. The system uses the user preferences to make this plan, and so, the user doesn’t need to look for it.


Madrid Live Desktop has the follow objectives:

  • Suggest a plan that contains preferred activities by users.
  • Avoid repetitions in different plans for each user.
  • Obtain the user preferences without he should insert much information.
  • Develop different types of preferences test.
