3 An illustration of dependencies in a simple user-based recommender system, and the order in which components refresh their data structures Just about any reasonable file will do, such as the simple comma-separated value file from chapter 2. Each line contained one datum: user ID, item ID, and preference value. Tab-separated files will work too. gz, respectively. It’s a good idea to store this data in a compressed format, because it can be huge, and it compresses well. 3 Refreshable components While we’re talking about loading data, it’s useful to talk about reloading data, and the Refreshable interface, which several components in the Mahout recommenderrelated classes implement.

Com> Running a first recommender engine 15 might technically be called a collaborative filtering framework. An example of this will follow in chapter 5, where you’ll build a recommender for a dating site. For now, though, it’s time to experiment with collaborative filtering within Mahout by creating some simple input and finding recommendations based on the input. 2 Running a first recommender engine Mahout contains a recommender engine—several types of them, in fact, beginning with conventional user-based and item-based recommenders.

Before we go on to study recommender engines in detail, it’s important to spend some time with another foundational concept for recommenders in Mahout: the representation of data. We’ll look at that in the next chapter. Download from Wow! com> Representing recommender data This chapter covers  How Mahout represents recommender data  DataModel implementations and usage  Handling data without preference values The quality of recommendations is largely determined by the quantity and quality of data.
