We are overloaded
But we really need and consume only a few of them!
Can Google Help?
Can Facebook Help?
Can Experts Help?
Yes, but only when we really know what we are looking for
What if I just want some interesting music tracks?
- Btw, what does it mean by “interesting”?
Yes, I tend to find my friends’ stuffs interesting
What if I had only few friends, and what they like do not always attract me?
Yes, but it won’t scale well
- Everyone receives exactly the same advice!
It is what they like, not me!
- Like movies, what get expert approval does not guarantee attention of the mass
Longitudinal System Dynamics
To understand how user-recommender interactions affect the temporal dynamics of recommender system, products and consumers
e.g., how do users’ consumption patterns influence system accuracy, product sales diversity, and user consumption relevance over time
Impact of Recommendations
: Do system recommendations displayed to consumers influence their preferences?
Biased recommendations not only impact consumers' preference ratings, but also their economic behavior
How do we know the recommendation is good?
Mostly measured by
Closeness between predicted rating and actual user rating
e.g., MAE, RMSE, Precision, Recall
Predictive accuracy isn't enough
coverage, diversity, novelty, robustness, profitability, etc
To recommend something we may like
- It may not be popular
- Based on our history of using services
- Based on other people like us
OK, here is the idea called Recommender Systems !
We need Help!
Define new performance evaluation metrics:
evaluate stability of popular recommendation algorithms in broad way of settings
Improve stability of recommendation algorithms:
Impact of data characteristics on recommendation performance:
rating data characteristics are associated with the variation in recommendation performance
How to correct the anchoring biases of consumers’ preferences caused by interacting with recommender system?
predictive ability of a recommender systems
aggregate consumption diversity
of consumed products
