Abstract:Recommender systems are applications that are mostly deployed in e-commerce and other noncommercial sites to suggest information and/or products and services, facilitating the decision-making processes for consumers and other end users. They implicitly assume that user needs and constraints can be mapped, through appropriate recommendation algorithms, into product and service selections using knowledge compiled into the system. Recommender systems are now widely used and are expected to be present in sites that display some degree of personalization.
