Personalization in E-Grocery: Top-N versus Top-k Rankings [article]

Franziska Scherpinski, Stefan Lessmann
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Substantial benefits for the customer and the company highlight the business value of top-N rankings as a new design requirement for recommender systems in e-grocery.  ...  The field experiment also reveals a 7% uplift in revenue due to the top-N ranking.  ...  Therefore, the first requirement is a top-N ranking. In a shopping scenario, one ranking cannot display optimal item recommendations for two users with different preferences.  ...
