MySpace Opens Up Recommendation Engine

MySpace has announced an open source framework for "distributed computation," which is ultimately a recommendation engine. It’s called Qizmt, and it’s the feature the social network currently uses for its "People you may Know" feature.

"Qizmt can be used for many operations that require processing large amounts of data such as collaborative filtering for recommendations and analytics," explains MySpace COO Mike Jones.
