Product Recommendation System


How likely are you to buy Candles when you buy a Cake? Very High Right?? We often buy shocks when we buy a new pair of Shoes. This is because shopkeeper recommend us to buy them and yes they are necessary. Is there any way I can implement same system in my E commerce Website and App? Yes you can and this is called a Product Recommendation System. This is Machine Learning System in which you are recommended product without explicitly hard coding.

Let’s assume, you have E commerce Shop. You want to recommend Toys when people buy dress for Kids. Until now you have to do it manually. When people buy this recommend this. And in large product, it is near to impossible. And as user behavior changes your hard coded system may not work. Hence, we introduced Product Recommendation Software in Nepal. You can implement this system and let machine automatically recommend product on the Basis of User Preferences and Product Type.

Note: You can use Recommendation System in any Website like News Recommendation, Video Recommendation, Food, Movie – not only E commerce.

Types of Recommendation System

Basically there are three types of Product Recommendation System:

  1. Content-Based
  2. Collaborative filtering
  3. Hybrid

Collaborative Filtering

In Collaborative Filtering Recommendation, our System will gather the Information of user, what products he have watched and purchased. Similarly, other data related to customer segments. Think of this like, lets say user A buys Milk with Bread and user B also buys Milk with Bread. Next time A buys Shoes with Shocks. Now you can recommend shocks to user B when he buys Shoes – as they resemble same buying preference.

A picture speaks thousand words:

Example of Collaborative Filtering

Content Based Recommendation

Unlike Collaborative Filtering, in Content Base Recommendation data is analyzed with the content itself than user. For example, if a person buys Milk and Bread, he is very likely to buy Jam right? Because these 3 products are quite related to each other. This also includes the historical data of the customer and recommend on the basis of past preferences.

Content Based Recommendation System

Hybrid is the combination of Both Content Based and Collaborative Filtering Recommendation.
