Collaborative filtering recommender systems often suffer from a data sparsity problem, where systems have insufficient data to generate accurate recommendations. To partially resolve this, the use of group aggregated data in the collaborative filtering recommendations process has been suggested. Although group recommendations are typically less accurate than personalized recommendations, they can be more accurate than generic ones, which are the natural fall back when personalized recommendations cannot be generated. This work presents a study that exploits a dataset of recipe ratings from families of users, in order to evaluate the accuracy of several group recommendation strategies and weighting models.
