Summary

Method for collaborative-filtering tasks. We base the rating of item for user by checking ratings of users with similar tastes

License
CC-BY-SA 3.0
Tags
collaborative-filtering neighborhood recommender systems user-based
Feature Processing
No feature processing required, however standard outlier removal might be helpful.
Parameters
matrix of user/item ratings
Operating System
independent
Code

function X = userbased( y,M,sizeX,swap,sim,neib) % Neighbour based regression algorithm % calculates similarities between users and than rating for i as % r_u(i) = sum_v sim(u,v) * rv(i) / sqrt(sim(u,u) * sim(v,v)

% Output % X - matrix to be estimated % Input % y - sampled entries % M - masking operator, applied to vectorized form of X % sizeX - size of matrix to be reconstructed % swap - switch to ITEM-BASED (default = 0) % sim - similarity measure (0 - PC, 1 - WPC, 2 - cos sim, default = 0) % neib - percentage of neibours taken into sum

Y = reshape(M(y,2),sizeX);

if nargin < 4
    swap = 0;
end
if nargin < 5
    sim = 0;
end
if nargin < 6
    neib = 0.8;
end
if swap
    Y = Y';
end;

if (sim < 2)
    corr = pearsonsim(Y,sim);
else
    corr = cosinesim(Y);
end;

corr(corr < 0) = 0;

rated = Y>0;
usedcorr = corr * rated';
X = corr * Y';
X = X  ./ usedcorr;
X(usedcorr==0) = mean(y);
X = X';

if (swap)
    X = X';
