SAR: Semantic Analysis for Recommendation

21 Feb 2017  ·  Han Xiao, Lian Meng ·

Recommendation system is a common demand in daily life and matrix completion is a widely adopted technique for this task. However, most matrix completion methods lack semantic interpretation and usually result in weak-semantic recommendations. To this end, this paper proposes a $S$emantic $A$nalysis approach for $R$ecommendation systems $(SAR)$, which applies a two-level hierarchical generative process that assigns semantic properties and categories for user and item. $SAR$ learns semantic representations of users/items merely from user ratings on items, which offers a new path to recommendation by semantic matching with the learned representations. Extensive experiments demonstrate $SAR$ outperforms other state-of-the-art baselines substantially.
