Development of approaches for reducing the prediction error has been an active research field in collaborative filtering recommender systems since the accuracy of the prediction plays a crucial role in user purchase preferences. Unlike the conventional collaborative filtering methods which directly use the computed user-to-user similarity values, this paper presents a genetic algorithm approach for refining them before using in the prediction process. The approach was found to yield promising… CONTINUE READING
