Hi Gurus,
 I was wondering if a user based collaborative filtering can be designed as a rapid miner flow in rapid miner UI. I attempeted to design but I could not succeed. This is for education purpose, I am doing my dissertation and I would like to design a simple collaborative filtering engine in RM to explore the various recommendation techniques. Any help would be highly appreciated.

The steps are
1. I have a sample data set, users have provided ratings for items
2. I want to calculate the similarity between users
3. Recommendations should be made to active user based on the preferences of people like minded to him

    Hi,
    this is a very complex topic and a very general question. So I could either write a dissertation about it or simply say: Yes, that is possible :)
    Here and there it might be needed to add an implementation of a recommendation technique, but this is quite simple and straight forward.

    If there are more specific questions, feel free to ask :)

    Greetings,
