Multi-rubric Models for Ordinal Spatial Data with Application to Online Ratings from Yelp

  title={Multi-rubric Models for Ordinal Spatial Data with Application to Online Ratings from Yelp},
  author={Antonio R. Linero and Jonathan R. Bradley and Apurva A. Desai},
  journal={arXiv: Applications},
Interest in online rating data has increased in recent years in which ordinal ratings of products or local businesses are provided by users of a website, such as Yelp or Amazon. One source of heterogeneity in ratings is that users apply different standards when supplying their ratings; even if two users benefit from a product the same amount, they may translate their benefit into ratings in different ways. In this article we propose an ordinal data model, which we refer to as a multi-rubric… 
Estimating Spatial Changes Over Time of Arctic Sea Ice using Hidden 2×2 Tables
Arctic sea ice extent has been of considerable interest to scientists in recent years, mainly due to its decreasing temporal trend over the past 20 years. In this article, we propose a hierarchical
Bayesian Inference of Spatio-Temporal Changes of Arctic Sea Ice
This article proposes a Bayesian spatio-temporal hierarchical statistical model for binary Arctic sea ice data over two decades, where a latent dynamic spatio/temporal Gaussian process is used to model the data-dependence through a logit link function.


OrdRec: an ordinal model for predicting personalized item rating distributions
A collaborative filtering recommendation framework, which is based on viewing user feedback on products as ordinal, rather than the more common numerical view, that is more principled and empirically superior in its accuracy.
A hierarchical model for ordinal matrix factorization
The model is evaluated on a collaborative filtering task, where users have rated a collection of movies and the system is asked to predict their ratings for other movies, and shows that the suggested model outperforms alternative factorization techniques.
Multivariate spatio-temporal models for high-dimensional areal data with application to Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics
This work analyzes Quarterly Workforce Indicators published by the US Census Bureau's Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics program and introduces the multivariate spatio-temporal mixed effects model (MSTM), which can be used to efficiently model high-dimensional multivariate spatial areal data sets.
Nonparametric Bayesian Modeling for Multivariate Ordinal Data
This article proposes a probability model for k-dimensional ordinal outcomes, that is, it considers inference for data recorded in k-dimensional contingency tables with ordinal factors. The proposed
Probabilistic Matrix Factorization
The Probabilistic Matrix Factorization (PMF) model is presented, which scales linearly with the number of observations and performs well on the large, sparse, and very imbalanced Netflix dataset and is extended to include an adaptive prior on the model parameters.
Bayesian Spatial Change of Support for Count-Valued Survey Data With Application to the American Community Survey
ABSTRACT We introduce Bayesian spatial change of support (COS) methodology for count-valued survey data with known survey variances. Our proposed methodology is motivated by the American Community
Nonparametric Priors for Ordinal Bayesian Social Science Models: Specification and Estimation
A generalized linear mixed model, ordered probit, is used to estimate levels of stress in presidential political appointees as a means of understanding their surprisingly short tenures. A Bayesian
Cold-start Active Learning with Robust Ordinal Matrix Factorization
This work presents a new matrix factorization model for rating data and a corresponding active learning strategy to address the cold-start problem and presents a computationally efficient framework for Bayesian active learning with this type of complex probabilistic model.
Dynamic Cumulative Probit Models for Ordinal Panel-Data; a Bayesian Analysis by Gibbs Sampling
This paper deals with a dynamic version of the cumulative probit model. A general multivariate autoregressive structure is proposed for modeling the temporal dynamic of both regression and threshold
