Convolutional Gaussian Embeddings for Personalized Recommendation with Uncertainty [article]

Junyang Jiang and Deqing Yang and Yanghua Xiao and Chenlu Shen
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Most of existing embedding based recommendation models use embeddings (vectors) corresponding to a single fixed point in low-dimensional space, to represent users and items.  ...  Such embeddings fail to precisely represent the users/items with uncertainty often observed in recommender systems.  ...  For example, the authors in [Sedhain et al., 2015] proposed a novel AutoEncoder (AE) framework for CF. DeepMF [Xue et al., 2017] is a deep version of MF-based recommendation model.  ...

Sequential Recommendation via Stochastic Self-Attention [article]

Ziwei Fan, Zhiwei Liu, Alice Wang, Zahra Nazari, Lei Zheng, Hao Peng, Philip S. Yu
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Sequential recommendation models the dynamics of a user's previous behaviors in order to forecast the next item, and has drawn a lot of attention.  ...  We devise a novel Wasserstein Self-Attention module to characterize item-item position-wise relationships in sequences, which effectively incorporates uncertainty into model training.  ...  Specifically, we model items as Gaussian distributions with stochastic embeddings, consisting of mean (for base interests) and covariance (for the variability of interests) embeddings.  ...
