Definition clarification[edit]

The lead-in sentence currently describes recommender systems as seeking to 'predict the "rating" or "preference" that a user would give to an item'. That seems overly specific and not in line with the more generic description in the link referenced from that statement, specifically that the seek to offer 'suggestions for items to be of use to a user.' As an example of the distinction of "rating" versus "items of use", consider what would happen if Amazon always displayed my three favourite novels at the bottom of every single page I visit. Yes, I have a really high preference for these (they are my favorites after all), but there is little utility in showing me the exact same items over and over again (and that I have likely already bought). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 141.166.159.0 (talk) 19:04, 28 October 2016 (UTC)

Recommender vs. recommendation[edit]

I've seen more people say "recommender system" than "recommendation system". Substantiated by a decade of research from GroupLens research. See 24 papers on http://grouplens.org/publications.html. dfrankow 22:38, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
