Abstract: Recommender systems are techniques designed to produce personalized recommendations. Data sparsity, scalability cold start and quality of prediction are some of the problems faced by a recommender system. Traditional recommender systems consider that all the users are independent and identical, its an assumption which leads to a total ignorance of social interactions and trust among user. Trust relation among users ease the work of recommender systems to produce better quality of recommendations. In this paper, an effective technique is proposed using trust factor extracted with help of ratings given so that quality can be improved and better predictions can be done. A novel-technique has been proposed for recommender system using film-trust dataset and its effectiveness has been justified with the help of experiments.
