Apache Mahout – Trade Recommendations

On the commute home last night I was reading some of the docs on Mahout.  Clearly the project has moved on somewhat since its inception.  A number of thoughts crossed my mind as to possible usages of Mahout:

  • Given the Wikipedia sample, it should be possible to provide user of Single Bank Platforms (SBPs) with recommendations for trade ideas, research, etc
  • An “out there” idea would be to leverage Mahout to offer trade recommendations based on current portfolio, last traded data, and last consumed content – not sure its possible, but its a thought.

Has anyone used Apache Mahout as part of a trading application?
