A Comparison of Offline Evaluations, Online Evaluations, and User Studies in the Context of Research-Paper Recommender Systems [chapter]

Joeran Beel, Stefan Langer
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we examine and discuss the appropriateness of different evaluation methods, i.e. offline evaluations, online evaluations, and user studies, in the context of research-paper recommender systems  ...  This is also true in the field of research-paper recommender systems, where the majority of recommendation approaches are evaluated offline, and only 34% of the approaches are evaluated with user studies  ...  In addition, we are first to discuss the appropriateness of the evaluation methods in the context of research-paper recommender systems, aside from our previous paper on recommender system evaluation  ...

Report on the workshop on reproducibility and replication in recommender systems evaluation (RepSys)

Alejandro Bellogín, Pablo Castells, Alan Said, Domonkos Tikk
2014 SIGIR Forum  
Experiment replication and reproduction are key requirements for empirical research methodology, and an important open issue in the field of Recommender Systems.  ...  While the problem of reproducibility and replication has been recognized in the Recommender Systems community, the need for a clear solution remains largely unmet, which motivates the main questions addressed  ...  Furthermore, we acknowledge the efforts of the members of the program committee, including: Xavier Amatriain ( Special thanks are due to the paper authors, the invited speaker, and all the participants  ...

Research paper recommender system evaluation

Joeran Beel, Stefan Langer, Marcel Genzmehr, Bela Gipp, Corinna Breitinger, Andreas Nürnberger
2013 Proceedings of the International Workshop on Reproducibility and Replication in Recommender Systems Evaluation - RepSys '13  
Among the evaluated approaches, 19% were not evaluated against a baseline. Of the user studies performed, 60% had 15 or fewer participants or did not report on the number of participants.  ...  Over 80 approaches for academic literature recommendation exist today. The approaches were introduced and evaluated in more than 170 research articles, as well as patents, presentations and blogs.  ...  Interesting in this context is the low number of online evaluations (7%) and the prevalence of offline evaluations (69%).  ...

Insights on Social Recommender Systems

Wolney Leal De Mello Neto, Ann Nowé
2012 ACM Conference on Recommender Systems  
In view of that, this paper proposes insights on how to possibly achieve more efficient and accurate predictions for recommendations by exploring multiple dimensions of a RS architecture.  ...  Assuming a user has a dense social network, the cold-start problem can be easily tackled. Finally, rating prediction accuracy performs better when evaluated online than by offline cross-validation.  ...  This research is part of a master studies sponsored by Monesia: MObility Network Europe-Southamerica: an Institutional Approach, an Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window.  ...

Research-paper recommender systems: a literature survey

Joeran Beel, Bela Gipp, Stefan Langer, Corinna Breitinger

Offline Evaluation of Reward-Optimizing Recommender Systems: The Case of Simulation [article]

Imad Aouali, Amine Benhalloum, Martin Bompaire, Benjamin Heymann, Olivier Jeunen, David Rohde, Otmane Sakhi, Flavian Vasile
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Both in academic and industry-based research, online evaluation methods are seen as the golden standard for interactive applications like recommendation systems.  ...  Here, we make the case that simulation-based comparisons provide ways forward beyond offline metrics, and argue that they are a preferable means of evaluation.  ...  In industry, if a sufficient number of offline metrics are promising, the method is further tested in online experiments such as A/B-tests. In this paper we argue: this is a sub-optimal methodology.  ...

Escaping the McNamara Fallacy: Towards more Impactful Recommender Systems Research

Dietmar Jannach, Christine Bauer
2020 The AI Magazine  
However, in the recommender systems research community, we have fallen prey to a McNamara fallacy to a worrying extent: In the majority of our research efforts, we rely almost exclusively on computational  ...  Through our analyses, we identify a number of research gaps and propose ways of broadening and improving our methodology in a way that leads us to more impactful research in our field.  ...  Only a handful of papers combined offline experiments with a user study, and another small set of papers very briefly reported outcomes of a controlled field experiment (A/B test).  ...
