Product recommendations

Product Recommendations forecast product popularity, augmenting product information with layers of information ranging from general to specific sensory descriptions and temporal dominance of sensation. FlavorID® can also be deployed in online recommendations. Building a successful recommender is challenging and highly complex. Being accurate is not enough. Success = the balance between serendipity (discovery or novelty) and familiar. Foodpairing is able to deliver on this.
