class turicreate.recommender.popularity_recommender.PopularityRecommender(model_proxy)

The Popularity Model ranks an item according to its overall popularity.

When making recommendations, the items are scored by the number of times it is seen in the training set. The item scores are the same for all users. Hence the recommendations are not tailored for individuals.

The Popularity Recommender is simple and fast and provides a reasonable baseline. It can work well when observation data is sparse. It can be used as a “background” model for new users.

Creating a PopularityRecommender

This model cannot be constructed directly. Instead, use turicreate.recommender.popularity_recommender.create() to create an instance of this model. A detailed list of parameter options and code samples are available in the documentation for the create function.
