  • Publication number: 20200364769
    Abstract: Described is a system for providing improved exploration for an interactive recommendation system by leveraging intuitive user feedback. The recommendation system may provide images of recommend items and receive user feedback preferences in the form of a natural language expression. Traditional techniques for interactive recommendation systems typically rely on restricted forms of user feedback such as binary relevance responses, or feedback based on a fixed set of relative attributes. In contrast, the recommendation system described herein introduces a new approach to interactive image recommendation (or image search) that enables users to provide feedback via natural language, allowing for a more natural and effective interaction. The recommendation system may be based on formulating the task of natural-language-based interactive image recommendation as a reinforcement learning problem, and reward the recommendation system for improving the rank of the target image during each iterative interaction.

  • Patent number: 10824960
    Abstract: A system and method are described herein for improving content-based (CB) filtering to find other items similar to a particular item. For example, the system and method can operate to (1) collect ground truth from users, experts or non-experts for a subset of items in a library; (2) build similarity model(s) against the collected ground truth and evaluate this/these similarity model(s) for generalizability to all items in the library, and (3) build recommendations for users based on knowledge elicited from the users themselves, combined with the similarity scores in the built similarity model(s).

  • Publication number: 20190324606
    Abstract: Systems and methods for customizing an interactive experience based on topics determined from an online topic model. In an example, a segmentation application executing on a computing device accesses past user interaction vectors that represent interaction data from an electronic content delivery system. The segmentation application accesses a segmentation model having parameters. The segmentation application updates the parameters by performing tensor decomposition on a tensor built from the past user interaction vectors and calculating updating values of the parameters from the tensor decomposition. The segmentation application performs a segmentation of user devices by applying the segmentation model with the updated parameters to the present user interaction vector. The segmentation assigns the user device to the user segment. The segmentation application transmits data describing the segmentation to the electronic content delivery system.
