Abstract:
(EN) This invention relates to a recommendation system that may be operated on a system comprising a client computer (110) connected to a recommendation site (120) via network (130) and utilizes a filterbot automated rating agent. A user uses client computer (110) to request and submit information about items to database server (124) and submit evaluation requests to a recommendation server (122). The filterbot agent evaluates new items and supplements a user rating database by providing ratings for the new items before a user has rated them. The filterbot agent polls or is notified by various database servers for new items to rate. Once a new item is found, the filterbot agent evaluates the item based on certain attributes and places the rated item along with an accompanying filterbot ID in a rating database. The recommended system may treat the ratings by the fillerbot as if a user provided the ratings.
