collaborative filtering

Collaborative filtering is used to create "recommendation systems" that can enhance the experience on a website; for example, by suggesting music or movies.

Different algorithms are used, but the basic principle is to develop a rating system for matching incoming material. "Collaborative" means that a group of people interested in the subject define their preferences when setting up the system. See collaborative software and music recommendation service.
