  • Patent number: 10223359
    Abstract: A processor may create a preference vector by generating preference vector entries in fields that correspond to content attributes associated with at least one media program presented via a media device, each entry including a playback duration and a year. The processor may create a media entity matrix of entity vectors for entities associated with production of media programs. For each entity vector, the processor may generate matrix entries in fields that correspond to content attributes associated with at least one media program associated with the entity, each matrix entry including a year and a score, the score weighted by an epoch factor based upon a time span associated with the at least one media program presented via the media device. The processor may determine entity rankings based upon dot products between the preference vector and the entity vectors and provide a recommendation based upon the rankings.
