This project is a basic tutorial to discover Neo4J and Cypher. It’s hosted on github.
With this project, Florent Empis has built a Movie recommender using the Cypher query language.
This query language has a very low barrier to entry if you have a basic theoritical knowledge of graphs. If something like (A)->(B) makes sense to you, then Cypher will as well.
Using MovieLens dataset, Florent built a suite of classes to:
- Digest MovieLens dataset and load it into a Neo4J embedded database
- Manually add full-text indexing
- Querying the graph for movie recommendations
