Understanding the Relation of User and News Representations in Content-Based Neural News Recommendation

  title={Understanding the Relation of User and News Representations in Content-Based Neural News Recommendation},
  author={Lucas Moller and Sebastian Pad{\'o}},
A number of models for neural content-based news recommendation have been proposed. However, there is limited understanding of the relative importances of the three main components of such systems (news encoder, user encoder, and scoring function) and the trade-offs involved. In this paper, we assess the hypothesis that the most widely used means of matching user and candidate news representations is not expressive enough. We allow our system to model more complex relations between the two by… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

MIND: A Large-scale Dataset for News Recommendation

This paper presents a large-scale dataset named MIND, constructed from the user click logs of Microsoft News, which contains 1 million users and more than 160k English news articles, each of which has rich textual content such as title, abstract and body.

News recommender system: a review of recent progress, challenges, and opportunities

This paper highlights the major challenges faced by the NRS and identifies the possible solutions from the state-of-the-art, and focuses on the deep neural networks as solutions to build the NRS.

Embedding-based News Recommendation for Millions of Users

An embedding-based method to use distributed representations in a three step end-to-end manner that performed well in an experimental offline evaluation using past access data on Yahoo! JAPAN's homepage and compared its online performance with a method that was conventionally incorporated into the system.

Neural News Recommendation with Multi-Head Self-Attention

A neural news recommendation approach with multi-head self-attentions to learn news representations from news titles by modeling the interactions between words and applies additive attention to learn more informative news and user representations by selecting important words and news.

Neural News Recommendation with Long- and Short-term User Representations

A neural news recommendation approach which can learn both long- and short-term user representations and which can effectively improve the performance of neuralNews recommendation.

Neural News Recommendation with Attentive Multi-View Learning

A neural news recommendation approach which can learn informative representations of users and news by exploiting different kinds of news information and can effectively improve the performance of news recommendation is proposed.

Deep Neural Networks for News Recommendations

A modified session-based Recurrent Neural Network model tailored to news recommendation as well as a history-based RNN model that spans the whole user's past histories to capture user preferences and to personalize recommendation results are proposed.

NPA: Neural News Recommendation with Personalized Attention

A neural news recommendation model with personalized attention (NPA) which exploits the embedding of user ID to generate the query vector for the word- and news-level attentions.

Neural News Recommendation with Topic-Aware News Representation

A neural news recommendation approach with topic-aware news representations that learns representations of users from their browsed news and uses attention networks to select informative news for user representation learning.

Graph Neural News Recommendation with Unsupervised Preference Disentanglement

This paper model the user-news interactions as a bipartite graph and proposes a novel Graph Neural News Recommendation model with Unsupervised Preference Disentanglement, named GNUD, which can effectively improve the performance of news recommendation and outperform state-of-the-art news recommendation methods.
