Recommender systems are web-based software tools that ease human decision making. Due to the proven effects of enhancing business value, the demand of companies for such technologies increases day by day. In this talk, we give a gentle introduction to recommender systems and then present a novel approach that sets a new frontier for applications in the tourism domain. By harnessing the interaction capabilities enabled by Internet of Things devices (e.g., beacons), by now recommender systems can support tourists while they are interacting with the physical space rather than just navigating the web. We showcase a real application that integrates this new technology and supports tourists in South Tyrol.
