Building a recommendation engine in Rails

Hi, I’m going to build a recommendation engine for our Intranet, which
aims to recommend content and connections based on data that is stored
in our database, such as tags, user-info etc.

Anyone know of a good place to start? Are there any plugins, howtos,
books that would guide me in the right direction?

Happy for all the direction I can get. Merry christmas!

Hi, do you have any progress on this topic? I have to do similar and
will be appreciated for good starting point :slight_smile:

Hey! So far it’s going pretty slow, I’ve worked with this as a starting
point:

My math-skills are a bit rusty, but I’m getting there :wink: If I have time
I’ll extract it and post it here!

Best of luck!
