Subject How to use Mahout's model recommender in online experiments ?
Date Thu, 25 May 2017 14:51:41 GMT

I learned in this site below how to use ALS facorization algoritm to made
recommendations in Mahout Framework.

>From this:
- we inform a file with the rating (user, item, rating), in my case I have
 implicit ratings;
- then get the files of the two latent matrices generated; and
- finally we insert theses files in a recommender engine that generate a
file with the list of recomendations for each user.

I think that it is made for big e-commerce companies periodically. (the
model and recomendations is built periodically in an offline moments)

At my case, I'm going to do an online experiment of recommender. This model
recommender will be the control group.

I have a file with ratings of a set of old users and I will have a set of
new users on this online experiment. The old users will not participate
this experiment.

Theses new users will use the recommener system for 2 weeks in the online

online experiments ?

I'd like to build a model once and use it to the new users...

>> Will I have to run the algoritm (re-buid the model) in each
recomendation made during the online experiment ?

Thanks and Regards,
