Recommender Systems today are still mostly evaluated in terms of accuracy, with other aspects beyond the immediate relevance of recommendations, such as diversity, long-term user retention and fairness, often taking a back seat.
EvalRS aims to bring together practitioners from industry and academia to foster a debate on rounded evaluation of recommender systems, with a focus on real-world impact across a multitude of deployment scenarios.
Much of the complexity of Recommender Systems (RSs) comes from the fact that they are used as part of more complex applications and affect user experience through a varied range of user interfaces.
The steady rise of online shopping goes hand in hand with the development of increasingly complex ML and NLP models.
The 2021 SIGIR workshop on eCommerce is hosting the Coveo Data Challenge for "In-session prediction for purchase intent and recommendations".
We investigate grounded language learning through real-world data, by modelling a teacher-learner dynamics through the natural interactions occurring between users and search engines; in particular, we explore the emergence of semantic generalization from unsupervised dense representations outside of synthetic environments.
This paper addresses the challenge of leveraging multiple embedding spaces for multi-shop personalization, proving that zero-shot inference is possible by transferring shopping intent from one website to another without manual intervention.
We address the problem of personalizing query completion in a digital commerce setting, in which the bounce rate is typically high and recurring users are rare.
The claims that big data holds the key to enterprise successes and that Artificial Intelligence is going to replace humanity have become increasingly more popular over the past few years, both in academia and in the industry.
Knowing if a user is a buyer or window shopper solely based on clickstream data is of crucial importance for e-commerce platforms seeking to implement real-time accurate NBA (next best action) policies.
