This thesis investigates the application of Swarm Intelligence algorithms to the field of Recommender Systems. The theoretical background of Swarm Intelligence is described with focus on Particle Swarm Optimization and Ant Colony Optimization algorithms. Afterwards, we present the sector of Recommender Systems, which in the past few years had a big growth due to the enormous use of interactive Web sites, which offer numerous choices with regard to services in the fields of e-commerce, e- learning and entertainment. We have described the various types of Recommender Systems, as well as the way that facilitate the individuals to share their opinions and to profit from the experiences of others in the frame of Collaborative Filtering. Finally, we present many algorithms proposed by various researchers.
