Review-based analysis of clustering approaches in a recommendation system

Sabeena Yasmin Hera, Mohammad Amjad


Because of the explosion in data, it is now incredibly difficult for a single person to filter through all of the information and extract what they need. As a result, information filtering algorithms are necessary to uncover meaningful information from the massive amount of data already available online. Users can benefit from recommendation systems (RSs) since they simplify the process of identifying relevant information. User ratings are incredibly significant for creating recommendations. Previously, academics relied on historical user ratings to predict future ratings, but today, consumers are paying more attention to user reviews because they contain so much relevant information about the user's decision. The proposed approach uses written testimonials to overcome the issue of doubt in the ratings' pasts. Using two data sets, we performed experimental evaluations of the proposed framework. For prediction, clustering algorithms are used with natural language processing in this strategy. It also evaluates the findings of various methods, such as the K-mean, spectral, and hierarchical clustering algorithms, and offers conclusions on which strategy is optimal for the supplied use cases. In addition, we demonstrate that the proposed technique outperforms alternatives that do not involve clustering.
