This page was added to discuss different versions of the code for collaborative filtering at Bryan's blog.

Chris' version

I renamed the variables and then reorganized the code a bit.

The(update,SlopeOne,predict) definitions can be compared with the newer (update2,SlopeOne',predict') definitions.

module WeightedSlopeOne (Rating, SlopeOne, empty, predict, update) where

import Data.List (foldl',foldl1')
import qualified Data.Map as M

-- The item type is a polymorphic parameter.  Since it goes into a Map
-- it must be able to be compared, so item must be an instance of Ord.
type Count = Int
type RatingValue = Double
-- The Rating is the known (item,Rating) information for a particular "user"
type Rating item = M.Map item RatingValue

-- The SlopeOne matrix is indexed by pairs of items and is implemented
-- as a sparse map of maps.
newtype SlopeOne item = SlopeOne (M.Map item (M.Map item (Count,RatingValue)))
  deriving (Show)

-- The SlopeOne' matrix is an un-normalized version of SlopeOne
newtype SlopeOne' item = SlopeOne' (M.Map item (M.Map item (Count,RatingValue)))
  deriving (Show)

empty = SlopeOne M.empty
empty' = SlopeOne' M.empty

-- This performs a strict addition on pairs made of two nuumeric types
addT (a,b) (c,d) = let (l,r) = (a+c, b+d) in l `seq` r `seq` (l, r)

-- There is never an entry for the "diagonal" elements with equal
-- items in the pair: (foo,foo) is never in the SlopeOne.

    SlopeOne . ( norm) . foldl' update' matrixIn $ usersRatings

More optimized storage

The changes to SlopeOne/update/predict below use a different internal data structure for storing the sparse matrix of SlopeOne. Instead of a Map of Map design it uses a Map of List design and keeps the List in distinct ascending form. The list values are a strict (data Tup) type which should help save space compared to the previous inner Map design and yet efficiently provide all the operations needed by update and predict.

Much of the logic of prediction is in the computeRating helper function.

-- The SlopeOne matrix is indexed by pairs of items and is implemented
-- as a sparse map of distinct ascending lists.  The 'update' and
-- 'predict' functions do not need the inner type to actually be a
-- map, so the list saves space and complexity.
newtype SlopeOne item = SlopeOne (M.Map item [Tup item])
  deriving (Show)

-- Strict triple tuple type for SlopeOne internals
data Tup item = Tup { itemT :: !item, countT :: !Count, ratingT :: !RatingValue }
  deriving (Show)

empty = SlopeOne M.empty

    SlopeOne . M.unionsWith mergeAdd . (matrixIn:) . map fromRating $ usersRatings
  where usersRatings = filter ((1<) . M.size) usersRatingsIn
        -- fromRating converts a Rating into a Map of Lists, a singleton SlopeOne.
        fromRating userRatings = M.mapWithKey expand userRatings
          where expand item1 rating1 = map makeTup . M.toAscList . M.delete item1 $ userRatings
                  where makeTup (item2,rating2) = Tup item2 1 (rating1-rating2)
