Too many resources (products, movies, books, papers, web pages...)

Resource filtering is time consuming

Help users during the filtering process

Personalized ranking of resources

Suggest useful resources to a given user

Problem Ingredients A set of users: U = { u 1 , u 2 , ... , u |U| } A set of items: P = { p 1 , p 2 , ... , p |P| } A set of opinions: t i,k = ( u i , p k , r i,k ) Correlation between items: C i,k = corr ( p i , p k ) NOTE: the correlation matrix has to be normalized WebKDD 2006 Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Aug. 20, 2006, at KDD 2006, Philadelphia, PA, USA

A set of users: U = { u 1 , u 2 , ... , u |U| }

A set of items: P = { p 1 , p 2 , ... , p |P| }

A set of opinions: t i,k = ( u i , p k , r i,k )

Correlation between items:

C i,k = corr ( p i , p k )

NOTE: the correlation matrix has to be normalized

Goal User u preferences Other users’ preferences Item correlation matrix C Properly rank items in set P with respect to: WebKDD 2006 Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Aug. 20, 2006, at KDD 2006, Philadelphia, PA, USA

User u preferences

Other users’ preferences

Item correlation matrix C

The Idea Correlation Graph obtained by Correlation Matrix Spread user preferences over the Correlation Graph WebKDD 2006 Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Aug. 20, 2006, at KDD 2006, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Correlation Graph obtained by Correlation Matrix

Spread user preferences over the Correlation Graph

ItemRank Algorithm Iterative equation: IR ItemRank values vector for user u IR i ItemRank value for item p i d preference vector for user u About 20 iterations to converge WebKDD 2006 Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Aug. 20, 2006, at KDD 2006, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Iterative equation:

IR ItemRank values vector for user u

IR i ItemRank value for item p i

d preference vector for user u

About 20 iterations to converge

ItemRank for Movies Movie Graph User u rates some movies (non-zero entries in d ) Correlation Graph built by co-occurrence of movies in user preference lists ItemRank suggests good movies to be watched WebKDD 2006 Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Aug. 20, 2006, at KDD 2006, Philadelphia, PA, USA

BAD NEWS

ItemRank computation is user dependent

Correlation Graph can be huge

GOOD NEWS

User clustering is possible (also soft-clustering)

C matrix is sparse: efficient way to compute PageRank-like algorithms

Future Works Scalability improvements: Users soft-clustering Efficient computation with sparse matrices Correlation matrix learning Comparison with graph regularization frameworks Applications to new datasets WebKDD 2006 Workshop on Knowledge Discovery on the Web, Aug. 20, 2006, at KDD 2006, Philadelphia, PA, USA

Scalability improvements:

Users soft-clustering

Efficient computation with sparse matrices

Correlation matrix learning

Comparison with graph regularization frameworks

Applications to new datasets
