I've written a simple recommender which generates recommendations for users based on what they have clicked. The recommender generates a data file with the following format:
userid,userid,simmilarity (between 0 and 1 - closer to 0 the more similar the users) a,b,.2 a,c,.3 a,d,.4 a,e,.1 e,b,.3 e,c,.5 e,d,.8
I've looked at some graphs, but I'm not sure which one to use, or if are there other ones that will better display the user similarities from the dataset above. Any suggestions?
I'm aiming this visualization at business users who are not at all technical. I would just like to show them an easy to understand visual that details how similar some users are and so convince the business that for these users the recommendation system is useful.
@Steve Kallestad do you mean something like this :
