Nowadays, recommendation has become an everyday activity in the World Wide Web. An increasing amount of work has been published in various areas related to the recommender system. Cross-domain recommendation is an emerging research topic. This type of recommendations has barely been investigated because it is difficult to obtain public datasets with user preferences crossing different domains. To solve dataset problem, one of the solution is to create different domains. Ontology is playing

Ontology defines a common vocabulary and a shared understanding and is applied for real world applications. Ontology is a formal representation of a set of concepts within a domain and the relationships between those concepts. This paper presents an approach for building ontologies using Taxonomic conversational case-based reasoning (Taxonomic CCBR) to apply cross-domain recommendation based on facial skin problems and related cosmetics. For linking cross-domain recommendation, Ford-Fulkerson algorithm is used to build the bridge of the concepts between two domain ontologies (Problems domain as the source domain and Cosmetics domain as the target domain).
