J. Breese, D. Heckerman., C. Kadie Empirical Analysis of Predictive Algorithms for Collaborative Filtering Proceedings of the Fourteenth Conference on Uncertainty in Artificial Intelligence, Madison, WI, July, 1998.This paper presents a comparison of a number of memory-based (correlation and vector similarity techniques) as well as model-based (cluster models and Bayesian networks) methods. In terms of predictive accuracy, the results indicate that the authors' Bayesian network approach to collaborative filtering is the best performing approach on this dataset.
