Recommender systems are an important component of many websites. [] Key Method MF methods learn the general taste of a user by factorizing the matrix over observed user-item preferences. On the other hand, MC methods model sequential behavior by learning a transition graph over items that is used to predict the next action based on the recent actions of a user. In this paper, we present a method bringing both approaches together. Our method is based on personalized transition graphs over underlying Markov…

Fusing Similarity Models with Markov Chains for Sparse Sequential Recommendation
TLDR
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.
A Hybrid Recommender System for Sequential Recommendation: Combining Similarity Models With Markov Chains
TLDR
A hybrid recommender system that unifies similarity models—collaborative and content-based—with Markov chains for a sequential recommendation (called U2CMS), which not only has superior performance compared to existing state-of-the-art recommendation systems, but also successfully handles sparsity issues better than other approaches.
Advanced Techniques for Latent Factor Recommender Systems
TLDR
The traditional approach of MF models is abandoned, and a model that learns probabilities for two items to be co-consumed together is proposed, and this work is motivated by many real world scenarios in which users long term history does not exists or irrelevant to her current interests.
Modeling the Dynamics of User Preferences for Sequence-Aware Recommendation Using Hidden Markov Models
TLDR
This work proposes an approach based on Hidden Markov Models (HMM) to identify change-points in the sequence of user interactions which reflect significant changes in preference according to the sequential behavior of all the users in the data.
Detecting Changes in User Preferences using Hidden Markov Models for Sequential Recommendation Tasks
TLDR
A HMM-based approach to change point detection in the sequence of user interactions which reflect significant changes in preference according to the sequential behavior of all the users in the data is proposed.
Movie Recommendation via Markovian Factorization of Matrix Processes
TLDR
A new model family termed Markovian factorization of matrix process (MFMP) is presented, capable of capturing the temporal dynamics in the dataset, and they also have clean probabilistic formulations, allowing them to adapt to a wide spectrum of collaborative filtering problems.
Temporal Item Embedding with Static Similarity Regularization for Sequential Recommendation
TLDR
A temporal item embedding method based on word2vec framework to model long purchase history, with each purchased item regarded as a word in sentence, which outperforms a spectrum of state-of-the-art algorithms.
Recommender System Using Sequential and Global Preference via Attention Mechanism and Topic Modeling
TLDR
A self-attentive sequential recommender system with topic modeling-based category embedding as a novel approach to exploit global information in the process of sequential recommendation and shows that the model outperforms state-of-the-art sequential recommendation models, and that categoryembedding effectively provides global preference information.

BPR: Bayesian Personalized Ranking from Implicit Feedback
TLDR
This paper presents a generic optimization criterion BPR-Opt for personalized ranking that is the maximum posterior estimator derived from a Bayesian analysis of the problem and provides a generic learning algorithm for optimizing models with respect to B PR-Opt.
Pairwise interaction tensor factorization for personalized tag recommendation
TLDR
The factorization model PITF (Pairwise Interaction Tensor Factorization) is presented which is a special case of the TD model with linear runtime both for learning and prediction and shows that this model outperforms TD largely in runtime and even can achieve better prediction quality.
Factorization meets the neighborhood: a multifaceted collaborative filtering model
TLDR
The factor and neighborhood models can now be smoothly merged, thereby building a more accurate combined model and a new evaluation metric is suggested, which highlights the differences among methods, based on their performance at a top-K recommendation task.
Collaborative Filtering for Implicit Feedback Datasets
TLDR
This work identifies unique properties of implicit feedback datasets and proposes treating the data as indication of positive and negative preference associated with vastly varying confidence levels, which leads to a factor model which is especially tailored for implicit feedback recommenders.
An MDP-Based Recommender System
TLDR
The use of an n-gram predictive model is suggested for generating the initial MDP, which induces a Markovchain model of user behavior whose predictive accuracy is greater than that of existing predictive models.
Empirical Analysis of Predictive Algorithms for Collaborative Filtering
TLDR
Several algorithms designed for collaborative filtering or recommender systems are described, including techniques based on correlation coefficients, vector-based similarity calculations, and statistical Bayesian methods, to compare the predictive accuracy of the various methods in a set of representative problem domains.
Collaborative filtering with temporal dynamics
TLDR
Two leading collaborative filtering recommendation approaches are revamp and a more sensitive approach is required, which can make better distinctions between transient effects and long term patterns.

This paper proposes two novel algorithms for large-scale OCCF that allow to weight the unknowns: Low-rank matrix approximation, probabilistic latent semantic analysis, and maximum-margin matrix factorization.
Using sequential and non-sequential patterns in predictive Web usage mining tasks
TLDR
An efficient framework for Web personalization based on sequential and non-sequential pattern discovery from usage data is described, which indicates that more restrictive patterns are more suitable for predictive tasks, such as Web prefetching, while less constrained patterns are less effective alternatives in the context of Webpersonalization and recommender systems.
Using Temporal Data for Making Recommendations
TLDR
This work describes two families of methods for transforming data to encode time order in ways amenable to off-the-shelf classification and density estimation tools and compares the results to collaborative filtering without ordering information.
