Description

Recommender systems have become very popular in recent years. Many applications include recommender algorithms in one way or another. An early example of industrial application of recommender systems is recommending books by Amazon. Other application areas include movies, music, news, web queries, tags, and products in general. Independent of the application domain, various approaches have been developed to improve recommendations. Further, explanations of recommendations and evaluating recommender systems are active research fields, together with psychological and economical implications, as well as privacy concerns. We will look at different aspects of recommender systems and fundamental algorithms of the field.
