Abstract:
The ultimate goal of the Recommender System (RS) is to offer a proposal that is very close to the user's real opinion. Data clustering can be effective in increasing the accuracy of production proposals by the RS. In this paper, single-objective hybrid evolutionary approach is proposed for clustering items in the offline collaborative filtering RS. This method, after generating a population of randomized solutions, at each iteration, improves the population of solutions first by Genetic Algorithm (GA) and then by using the Gravitational Emulation Local Search (GELS) algorithm. Simulation results on standard datasets indicate that although the proposed hybrid meta-heuristic algorithm requires a relatively high run time, it can lead to more appropriate clustering of existing data and thus improvement of the Mean Absolute Error (MAE), Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) and Coverage criteria.
