BCMS Honours Topic: "Social network-based film recommendation algorithm."
The aim of my honours project is to create a better film recommendation algorithm. At the moment films are recommended to users based on genre, and on movies they have watched already or have looked up. Current systems use 3 different approaches, Collaborative Filtering , Content Based Filtering and Hybrid Recommender Systems.
What we want to do is improve on the current systems by not only making recommendations based on what the users have watched on IndieReign, but we also want to tap in to their social networking activities (Facebook only, at the moment) and try and create more in depth profiles of our users by trying to tie into users likes, shares, and anything else they may have viewed from their social networking platform.
