Subject Recommendations on binary ratings
Date Fri, 11 Jun 2010 12:30:24 GMT

I'm a newbie to mahout.My aim is to produce recommendations on binary user
purchased data.So i applied item-item similarity model in computing top N
recommendations for movie lens data assuming 1-3 ratings as a 0 and 4-5
ratings as a 1.Then i tried evaluating my recommendations with the ratings
in the test-data but hardly there have been two or three matches from my top
20 recommendations to the top rated items in test data and no match for most

So are my recommendations totally bad by nature or do i need to go for a
different measure for evaluating my recommendations ?

Please help me ! Thanks in advance.
