报告题目：From Item to Basket-oriented Recommendation
报告人：Fang Yuan（Singapore Management University ）
Abstract: Recommendation systems are increasingly important in the age of information overload. While traditional approaches focus on individual items, in many scenarios, multiple items are simultaneously adopted as a basket. The associations between items in the same basket, or basket-oriented
associations, present new opportunities to improve recommendation. In particular, we study how additional items can be recommended to complement an existing basket before check-out, as well as how a new basket of items can be presented to users based on their historical baskets. Our models capture basket-oriented associations, along with other traditional types of associations, to achieve basket oriented recommendation. Empirical results suggest that our basket-oriented models are promising and significantly outperform item-centric models.
