Movie Recommender System Using K-Means Clustering AND K-Nearest Neighbor


In the field of Artificial Intelligence Machine learning provides the automatic systems which learn and improve itself from experience without being explicitly programmed. In this research work a movie recommender system is built using the K-Means Clustering and K-Nearest Neighbor algorithms. The movielens dataset is taken from kaggle. The system is implemented in python programming language. The proposed work deals with the introduction of various concepts related to machine learning and recommendation system. In this work, various tools and techniques have been used to build recommender systems. Various algorithms such as K-Means Clustering, KNN, Collaborative Filtering, Content-Based Filtering have been described in detail. Further, after studying different types of machine learning algorithms, there is a clear picture of where to apply which algorithm in different areas of industries such as recommender systems, e-commerce, etc. Then there is an illustration of how implementations and working of the proposed system are used for the implementation of the movie recommender system. Various building blocks of the proposed system such as Architecture, Process Flow, Pseudo Code, Implementation and Working of the System is described in detail. Finally, in this work for different cluster values, different values of Root Mean Squared Error are obtained. In this proposed work as the no of clusters decreases, the value of RMSE also decreases. The best value of RMSE obtained is 1.081648. The results given by the proposed system are better than the existing technique on the basis of RMSE value.
