Okay, is it just me or is the "Similarity Fusion" paper completely BS ? (sigir06_similarityfuson.pdf). They initially claim that they're going to combine the prediction from similar users & similar movies based on their confidence in each (which sounds good & reasonable), but then they introduce hard-coded constants and basically just lerp between the two using these fixed constants.
