Recent research has shown that a case-based perspective on collaborative filtering for recommendation can provide significant benefits in decision support accuracy over traditional collaborative techniques, particularly as dataset sparsity increases. These benefits derive both from the use of more sophisticated case-based similarity metrics and from the proactive maintenance of item similarity knowledge using data mining. This paper presents a natural next step in the work by validating these findings in the context of more complex models of collaborative filtering, as well as by demonstrating that such techniques also preserve recommendation diversity.
