Recommendation systems are powerful tools that can alleviate system overload problems by recommending the most relevant items (contents) to users. Recommendation systems allow users to find useful, interesting items from a significantly large space and also enhance the user’s browsing experience. Relevant items are determined by predicting user’s ratings on different items. Two traditional techniques used in recommendation system are Content-Based filtering and Collaborative-Filtering. Content-Based filtering uses content of the items that the user has involved in the past to discover items that the user might be interested in. On the other hands, Collaborative-Filtering determine the similarity between users and recommends items chosen by similar users
