Product recommender systems and customer profiling techniques have always been a priority in online retail. Recent machine learning research advances and also wide availability of massive parallel numerical computing has enabled various approaches and directions of recommender systems advancement. Worth to mention is the fact that in past years multiple traditional "offline" retail business are gearing more and more towards employing inferential and even predictive analytics both to stock… Expand

Session-based Recommendations with Recurrent Neural Networks
It is argued that by modeling the whole session, more accurate recommendations can be provided by an RNN-based approach for session-based recommendations, and introduced several modifications to classic RNNs such as a ranking loss function that make it more viable for this specific problem. Expand
An Attribute-aware Neural Attentive Model for Next Basket Recommendation
A novel Attribute-aware Neural Attentive Model (ANAM) is proposed to address the problems of next basket recommendation and relays the user's appetite toward items and their attributes to next basket through attention weights shared across baskets on the two different hierarchies. Expand
Fusing Similarity Models with Markov Chains for Sparse Sequential Recommendation
Fossil is proposed, a similarity-based method that outperforms alternative algorithms, especially on sparse datasets, and qualitatively that it captures personalized dynamics and is able to make meaningful recommendations. Expand
Improved Recurrent Neural Networks for Session-based Recommendations
This work proposes the application of two techniques to improve RNN-based models for session-based recommendations performance, namely, data augmentation, and a method to account for shifts in the input data distribution. Expand
E-commerce in Your Inbox: Product Recommendations at Scale
A system that leverages user purchase history determined from e-mail receipts to deliver highly personalized product ads to Yahoo Mail users is described, which was evaluated against baselines that included showing popular products and products predicted based on cooccurrence. Expand
Adversarial Training of Word2Vec for Basket Completion
This paper builds upon the recent progress made in stabilizing the training objective of GANs in the discrete data setting, and introduces a new GAN-Word2Vec model, and proposes Adversarial Negative Sampling. Expand
Long and Short-Term Recommendations with Recurrent Neural Networks
This work characterized the full short-term/long-term profile of many collaborative filtering methods, and showed how recurrent neural networks can be steered towards better short or long-term predictions, showing that RNNs are perfectly suited for collaborative filtering on dense datasets where it outperforms traditional item recommendation algorithms.
