    Recommender Systems (RSs) are software tools and techniques that provide suggestions for items that are most likely of interest to a particular user. In this introductory chapter, we briefly discuss basic RS ideas and ...
  • Recommender Systems: Models and Techniques 

    Ricci F (Springer, 2014)
    RSs are information search and filtering tools that provide suggestions for items to be of use to a user. They have become common in a large number of Internet applications, helping users to make better choices while ...
  • Recommending Based on Implicit Feedback 

    Jannach D; Lerche L; Zanker M (Springer, 2018)
    Recommender systems have shown to be valuable tools for filtering, ranking, and discovery in a variety of application domains such as e-commerce, media repositories or document-based information in general that includes ...
