Using Data mining techniques to write a product recommendation script RRS feed

    Hi all,

    Actually I'm working on a small school project about Data mining. Our professor asked us to use Data mining techniques to create an application to recommend products to clients. And I thought it will be better to use C#/MVC to build this application us I'm more familiar with .Net technologies and I have a little experience with E-commerce projects,  but I'm not sure where to start from and I would really appreciate it if you can guide me to the right way by giving me some examples, articles or books...

    In the past I created a "related items module" to display related items in the item details page but it was only using departments/categories relationship, but what we need now is something like: a customer purchased sugar and flour ===> hmmm may be he is planning on baking a cake so let's recommend eggs...

    sounds like you're looking for subsets:  you'd need a database of things, e.g.:  

    cake (sugar, flour, ... )

    cookie (sugar, flour, ... )

    Then you'd perform a query:  show me ALL items containing BOTH sugar and flour.
