© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. Recommender systems aim at providing suggestions of interest for end-users. Two main types of approach underlie existing recommender systems: content-based methods and collaborative filtering. In this paper, encouraged by good results obtained in classification by analogical proportion-based techniques, we investigate the possibility of using analogy as the main underlying principle for implementing a prediction algorithm of the collaborative filtering type. The quality of a recommender system can be estimated along diverse dimensions. The accuracy to predict user’s rating for unseen items is clearly an important matter. Still other dimensions like coverage and surprise are also of great interest. In this paper, we describe our implementation and we compare the proposed approach with well-known recommender systems.
