Subject Re: RecommenderJob in mahout-0.4 returning 1.0 score for each recommendation
Date Fri, 26 Nov 2010 18:45:53 GMT
Hi Sean,

the prediction computation for boolean data is done in

It computes *all* possible items to recommend for the current user and
writes out only the n first after that, with n being the number
specified in the parameter --numRecommendations given to RecommenderJob.

Can you point me to the code where the non-distributed code handles the
problem of ranking them? We could certainly emulate that behaviour in
the distributed code too.
