> Conclusion 

> Mahout Taste is a very flexible platform to experiment
> collaborative filtering algorithms. It certainly won’t provide you an
> immediate solution to your recommendation problem, but you’ll be
> easily able to either tune the existing algorithms or plug your own
> creative ones into the mahout taste interfaces set. By doing so,
> you’ll immediately get the benefit of a platform allowing you to
> compare, tune and improve iteratively the results of your different
> algorithm configurations. Last but not least, Mahout taste provide an
> external server which exposes recommendation logic to your
> application via web services and HTTP.
