A Collaborative Filtering Recommendation Algorithm Based on Bipartite Graph
With the rapid growth and wide application of Internet, everyday there are many of information generated and the existence of a large amount of information makes it hardly to mining the wanted information. The recommendation algorithm is the process to alleviative the problem. Collaborative filtering algorithm is one successful personalized recommendation technology, and is widely used in many fields. But traditional collaborative filtering algorithm has the problem of sparsity, which will influence the efficiency of prediction. In this paper, a collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm based on bipartite graph is proposed. The algorithm takes users, items and tags into account, and also studies the degree of tags which may affect the similarity of users. The collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm based on bipartite graph can alleviate the sparsity problem in the electronic commerce recommender systems.
