Artificial Intelligence and Recommender Systems
A recommender system or a recommendation system (sometimes replacing “system" with a synonym such as platform or engine) is a subclass of information filtering system that seeks to predict the “rating" or “preference" a user would give to an item.
Recommender systems are utilized in a variety of areas including movies, music, news, books, research articles, search queries, social tags, and products in general. There are also recommender systems for experts, collaborators, jokes, restaurants, garments, financial services, life insurance, romantic partners, and Twitter pages.
