The dataset contains a sample of 5000 users from the anonymous ratings data from the Jester Online Joke Recommender System collected between April 1999 and May 2003 (Gold- berg, Roeder, Gupta, and Perkins 2001). The dataset contains ratings for 100 jokes on a scale from -10 to 10. All users in the data set have rated 36 or more jokes. Let's load the recommenderlab library and the Jester5K dataset:
