Concerning the recommender extension:
how is the most popular algorithm working? Where can I find a fine description of that (In the documentation is only said

Most-popular item recommender

Items are weighted by how often they have been seen in the past.

thank you in advance

    this is not an extension maintained by RapidMiner so I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that question.
    Checking out the marketplace page for the extension leads to their website
    You may find more information or contact possibilities there.

    Thank you a lot, I contacted the person who wrote the code for this algorithm in RapidMiner and everything was clear:

    "the Most Popular algorithm is one of the "simple" recommendation algorithms in the extension. This algorithm stores view counts (how many times has this item been viewed from the users in the train set) for each item in the train set. When doing recommendation for a given user, it returns a view count for each item this user has not seen before and returns top-k items based on this count. "
