In this article I discuss:
Recommender systems or recommendation systems (sometimes replacing "system" with a synonym such as platform or engine) are a subclass of information filtering system that seek to predict the 'rating' or 'preference' that user would give to an item (such as music , books , or movies ) or social element (e.g. people or groups ) they had not yet considered, using a model built from the characteristics of an item (content-based approaches) or the user's social environment (collaborative filtering approaches). [ 1 ] [ 2 ] Recommender systems have become extremely common in recent years. A few examples of such systems: When viewing a product on Amazon.com , the store will recommend additional items based on a matrix of what other shoppers bought along with the currently selected item. [ 3 ] Pandora Radio takes an initial input of a song or musician and plays music with similar characteristics (based on a series of keywords attributed to the inputted artist or piece of music).

7 Jan Since HTML5 is getting more attention by way of marking up our new pages, and the only way to get IE to acknowledge the new elements, such as <article> , is to use the HTML5 shiv , I’ve quickly put together a mini script that enables all the new elements. Download html5shiv.js and must be inserted in the head element (this is because IE needs to know about the element before it comes to render them – so it can’t sit in the footer of the page, i.e. below the elements in question). I’ve updated this post to link to Alexander Farkas’s version of the shiv – it’s the very latest and my simple one line script. The one I originally released was (I thought) beautifully small, but didn’t support print styles nor dynamic injection of HTML5 elements.
