Subject Re: How about a LSH recommender ?

Ok, I would try to implement a none-distributed one. Actually I have a
python version now.

But I have a problem. When doing min-hash, the matrix should be either 1 or
0, and then do the hash functions. Then how about rating data? If the matrix
is filled with 1~5 numbers, should we convert them use some treshould and
convert the rating to 1 if the rating is more than the treshould?

This is the reference I read about LSH. check it out (chapter 3)
