2021 pre-print
To achieve our goal, we propose a new training and inference paradigm for recommendation named Popularity-bias Deconfounding and Adjusting (PDA).  ...  Empirical studies validate that the deconfounded training is helpful to discover user real interests and the inference adjustment with popularity bias could further improve the recommendation accuracy.  ...  We claim that PD can alleviate the amplification of popularity bias, i.e., removing the bad effect of popularity bias.  ...
