[Objective]This paper tries to improve the recommendation algorithm, aiming to reduce the dependence on the number of groups (k value) at the catorization stage.[Methods]Weused the ISA algorithm to modify the collaborative filtering algorithm and finish the clustering tasks from the perspectives of users and projects. Then, we created a virtual user representing the group interests based on user’s expertise. Finally, we predicted the target users’ ratings based on the new collaborative filtering algorithm.[Results]This algorithm can remove the empirical dependence of k, and improve the accuracy of collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm. The MAE was reduced to 0.697 with 200 groups and the MAE was reduced to 0.693 with 500 groups from the FilmTrust dataset. The RMSE was reduced to 1.022 with the MovieLens dataset. [Limitations]Several rounds of repeating experience are needed to improve the quality of this study.[Conclusions] This algorithm does not rely on the dependence of k, and effectively improves the performance of collaborative filtering recommendation algorithm.
