Abstract

Recommender systems have become indispensable for online services since they alleviate the information overload problem for users. Some work has been proposed to support the personalized recommendation by utilizing collaborative filtering to learn the latent user and item representations from implicit interactions between users and items. However, most of existing methods simplify the implicit frequency feedback to binary values, which make collaborative filtering unable to accurately learn the latent user and item features. Moreover, the traditional collaborating filtering methods generally use the linear functions to model the interactions between latent features. The expressiveness of linear functions may not be sufficient to capture the complex structure of users’ interactions and degrades the performance of those recommender systems. In this paper, we propose a neural personalized ranking model for collaborative filtering with the implicit frequency feedback. The proposed method integrates the ranking-based poisson factor model into the neural networks. Specifically, we firstly develop a ranking-based poisson factor model, which combines the poisson factor model and the Bayesian personalized ranking. This model adopts a pair-wise learning method to learn the rankings of uses’ preferences between items. After that, we propose a neural personalized ranking model on top of the ranking-based poisson factor model, named NRPFM, to capture the complex structure of user-item interactions. NRPFM applies the ranking-based poisson factor model on neural networks, which endows the linear ranking-based poisson factor model with a high level of nonlinearities. Experimental results on two real-world datasets show that our proposed method compares favorably with the state-of-the-art recommendation algorithms.
