Subject Using Item Based recommenders as content based recommenders
Date Thu, 23 Jul 2009 17:41:18 GMT
Hi guys,

I know that Mahout supports only collaborative filtering, but let's see if
this approach makes sense:

Item-based recommenders can be initialized with pre-computed item-item
similarities, right? And what if those item similarities are computed using
a Content Based technique (example off the top of my head, Cosine distance
between the text of two documents computed using Lucene)? Am I missing

Thanks for your help
