Product Description

From the Back Cover

The explosive growth of e-commerce and online environments has made the issue of information search and selection increasingly serious; users are overloaded by options to consider and they may not have the time or knowledge to personally evaluate these options. Recommender systems have proven to be a valuable way for online users to cope with the information overload and have become one of the most powerful and popular tools in electronic commerce. Correspondingly, various techniques for recommendation generation have been proposed. During the last decade, many of them have also been successfully deployed in commercial environments.

Recommender Systems Handbook, an edited volume, is a multi-disciplinary effort that involves world-wide experts from diverse fields, such as artificial intelligence, human computer interaction, information technology, data mining, statistics, adaptive user interfaces, decision support systems, marketing, and consumer behavior. Theoreticians and practitioners from these fields continually seek techniques for more efficient, cost-effective and accurate recommender systems. This handbook aims to impose a degree of order on this diversity, by presenting a coherent and unified repository of recommender systems’ major concepts, theories, methodologies, trends, challenges and applications. Extensive artificial applications, a variety of real-world applications, and detailed case studies are included.

Recommender Systems Handbook illustrates how this technology can support the user in decision-making, planning and purchasing processes. It works for well known corporations such as Amazon, Google, Microsoft and AT&T. This handbook is suitable for researchers and advanced-level students in computer science as a reference.

If you are researching recommender systems at undergraduate or postgraduate then this is the book for you. Save your self hours of work by getting and reading this first. At the end of each chapter there is a comprehensive list of relevant journal articles which you can explore later online. If your library subscribes to Springer Link then you can save a tonne (I got mine for 24.99 GBP delivered) by buying it directly from Springer Link.

Even if you are not researching in this area but are a professional that wants to learn more about Recommender Systems then this is a fantastically written book that is easy to follow.

Exactly what I wanted 6 Jun 2013
By Bradford Needham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book as an organized, detailed tour through the state of the art in Recommendation technology, and it delivered everything I wanted.

If I were forced to fault it for something, it would be for the minor grammatical errors, which didn't get in my way at all.
