19 ] Data Mining Techniques Used in Recommender Systems See the R implementation of SVM on the iris dataset in the following code snippet. We used the e1071 package to run SVM. In R, the SVM() function contains the implementation of support vector machines present in the e1071 package. Now, we will see that the SVM() method is called with the tune() method, which does cross validation and runs the model on different values of the cost parameters. model object tells us that the model works best with the cost parameter as 10 and total number of support vectors as 25: pred = predict(model,test) Decision trees Decision trees are a simple, fast, tree-based supervised learning algorithm to solve classification problems.

This section will provide an overview of popular ensemble methods such as bagging, boosting, and random forests Bagging Bagging is also known as Bootstrap aggregating. It is designed to improve the stability and accuracy of machine-learning algorithms. It helps avoid over fitting and reduces variance. This is mostly used with decision trees. Bagging involves randomly generating Bootstrap samples from the dataset and trains the models individually. Predictions are then made by aggregating or averaging all the response variables: • For example, consider a dataset (Xi, Yi), where i=1 …n, contains n data points.

Let's count the occurrences of each of them. = 0] Now, we can build a frequency plot of the ratings. In order to visualize a bar plot with frequencies, we can use ggplot2. Let's convert them into categories using factor and build a quick chart: vector_ratings <- factor(vector_ratings) Let's visualize their distribution using qplot: qplot(vector_ratings) + ggtitle("Distribution of the ratings") [ 39 ] Recommender Systems The following image shows the distribution of the ratings: Most of the ratings are above 2, and the most common is 4.
