Abstract: Collaborative filtering is a very popular recommendation technique. Among the different approaches, the k- Nearest Neighbors algorithm stands out by its simplicity, and its good and explainable results. This algorithm bases its recommendations to a given user on the opinions of similar users. Thus, selecting those similar users is an important step in the recommendation, known as neighborhood selection. In real applications with millions of users and items, this step can be a serious performance bottleneck because of the huge number of operations needed. In this paper we study the possibility of pre-computing the neighbors in an offline step, in order to increase recommendation efficiency. We show how neighborhood pre-computation reduces the recommendation time by two orders of magnitude without a significant impact in recommendation precision.
