Lecture/Seminar Graduate Student Seminar: Popularity Based Product Rating System Using Bayesian Model 2017-06-19 12:00:00

Speaker: Ajay Khatri
Supervisor: Dr. Fayez Gebali 


Rating of products is an integral part of the online shopping experience nowadays. A product can be termed as popular on the basis of number of purchases and number of ratings.This project involves combining the popularity and average rating of a given product to develop a new strategy for 5 star product rating system.The formulation of this technique is based on Bayesian model of statistics. The purpose of new product rating system is to improve the sorting of rated products. In addition to the rating analysis, an open source movie database is used for implementation of this rating system. It was found that the top 10 movie list matches very closely with the actual live data.
