RAPS: A Recommender Algorithm Based on Pattern Structures
We propose a new algorithm for recommender systems with numeric ratings which is based on Pattern Structures (RAPS). As the input the algorithm takes rating matrix, e.g., such that it contains movies rated by users. For a target user, the algorithm returns a rated list of items (movies) based on its previous ratings and ratings of other users. We compare the results of the proposed algorithm in terms of precision and recall measures with Slope One, one of the state-of-theart item-based algorithms, on Movie Lens dataset and RAPS demonstrates the best or comparable quality.
