Score_replace {CFF}R Documentation

Replacing of Neighbor Users' Ratings on Non-Rated Items By The Active User

Description

The ratings of each user that has more similar to the active user are directly replaced in his unseen items.

Usage

Score_replace(ratings, sim_index, ac)

Arguments

ratings

A rating matrix whose rows are items and columns are users.

sim_index

Descending sorted indexes based on similarity to the active user who is a vector of integers.

ac

The id of an active user as an integer (1≤ ac ≤ length of users).

Details

The unseen items of the active user are filled by the ratings of the similar users, respectively. Each element remains unchanged after one placement.

Value

ratings2

A matrix the size of the original user-item matrix in which the active user's empty elements are filled.
