Rapid advancements in the E-commerce sector over the last few decades have led to an imminent need for personalised, efficient and dynamic recommendation systems. To sufficiently cater to this need, we propose a novel method for generating top-k recommendations by creating an ensemble of clustering with reinforcement learning. We have incorporated DB Scan clustering to tackle vast item space, hence in-creasing the efficiency multi-fold. Moreover, by using deep contextual reinforcement learning,

The Duelling Bandit based exploration provides robust exploration as compared to the state-of-art strategies due to its adaptive nature. Detailed experiments conducted on a public dataset verify our claims about the efficiency of our technique as com-pared to existing techniques.
