Variational Autoencoders for Collaborative Filtering
WWW '18: The Web Conference 2018 Lyon France April, 2018, pp. 689-698, 2018.
We extend variational autoencoders (VAEs) to collaborative filtering for implicit feedback. This non-linear probabilistic model enables us to go beyond the limited modeling capacity of linear factor models which still largely dominate collaborative filtering research.We introduce a generative model with multinomial likelihood and use Baye...More
