UIIM: A User-Item Interest Model Based on Bipartite Network for Top-N Recommender System

Zhixiong Jiang, Chunyang Lu, Siyuan Zheng, and Juan Yang
Abstract—Recently, a sparse linear method (SLIM) is developed for top-N recommender systems, which can produce high-quality recommendations for sparse data sets. SLIM provides a better performance than other existing methods. In this paper, we provide a novel user-item interest method (UIIM) based on bipartite network to improve the performance of SLIM. UIIM generates top-N recommendations by building the user-item interest matrix R with the bipartite network of users and items, calculating the item-item similarity matrix W with SLIM and predicting users’ ratings on items as a dot product of matrix R and W. And we also provide a parallel algorithm based on Spark to learn W. Our results indicate that UIIM provides better performance and recommendation quality than other existing methods and parallel algorithm of learning W outperforms serial algorithm on large-scale data sets.

Index Terms—Top-N recommender systems, bipartite network, UIIM, SLIM, parallel.
