Abstract

   ReelAdvice+ is a research project on recommending systems. What a recommending system does is help users find useful items in a world of overwhelming amounts of information. They take known information about users and items to predict what should be useful for certain individuals. These systems already exist in today’s world but all work differently because there are different approaches to each field and each system is usually tailored for its intended use. With my research I hope to further understand how these systems work and take the different techniques along with some extra information to better tailor the system for a movie recommending system.
