In Detail

A recommendation system performs extensive data analysis in order to generate suggestions for its users about what might interest them. R has recently become one of the most popular programming languages for data analysis. Its structure allows you to interactively explore the data, and its modules contain the most cutting-edge techniques thanks to its large international community. This distinctive feature of the R language makes it the preferred choice for developers who are looking to build recommendation systems.

This book will help you understand how to build recommender systems using R. It starts off by explaining the basics of data mining and machine learning. Next, you will be familiarized with how to build and optimize recommender models using R. Following that, you will be given an overview of the most popular recommendation techniques. Finally, you will learn to implement all the concepts you have learned throughout the book to build a recommender system.
