dc.description.abstract <p>Recommender systems are information filtering systems that deal with the problem of information overload by filtering vital information from a large amount of data retrieved based on user preferences, interests or observed behavior about an item. The challenge is to come up with a fast and efficient algorithm that predicts user preferences on unseen items using a combination of content-based filtering (leveraging metadata about the users/items) and collaborative filtering (leveraging other user ratings). The algorithm uses a parallel computing framework called GPUFish to solve very large scale matrix completion problems. It addresses the main issue of predicting future ratings on a certain product, given a subset of user ratings. Such an algorithm is beneficial for large-scale content providers like Netflix and Amazon to filter their data in a fast and efficient manner and get accurate results. The testing of this algorithm is done through a food application which is implemented using JavaScript and a MongoDB database. The application prompts users to rate different food recipes and this information is used for predicting user ratings in the future. I am involved in developing the android application that uses the Volley networking library to interact with the database and have designed multiple screens to ease the process of user information retrieval.</p>
