  • Learning to Respond with Your Favorite Stickers: A Framework of Unifying
           Multi-Modality and User Preference in Multi-Turn Dialog

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Shen Gao, Xiuying Chen, Li Liu, Dongyan Zhao, Rui Yan

      Stickers with vivid and engaging expressions are becoming increasingly popular in online messaging apps, and some works are dedicated to automatically select sticker response by matching the stickers image with previous utterances. However, existing methods usually focus on measuring the matching degree between the dialog context and sticker image, which ignores the user preference of using stickers. Hence, in this article, we propose to recommend an appropriate sticker to user based on multi-turn dialog context and sticker using history of user. Two main challenges are confronted in this task. One is to model the sticker preference of user based on the previous sticker selection history.

  • Unbiased Learning to Rank: Online or Offline'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Qingyao Ai, Tao Yang, Huazheng Wang, Jiaxin Mao

      How to obtain an unbiased ranking model by learning to rank with biased user feedback is an important research question for IR. Existing work on unbiased learning to rank (ULTR) can be broadly categorized into two groups—the studies on unbiased learning algorithms with logged data, namely, the offline unbiased learning, and the studies on unbiased parameters estimation with real-time user interactions, namely, the online learning to rank. While their definitions of unbiasness are different, these two types of ULTR algorithms share the same goal—to find the best models that rank documents based on their intrinsic relevance or utility. However, most studies on offline and online unbiased learning to rank are carried in parallel without detailed comparisons on their background theories and empirical performance.

  • VM-NSP: Vertical Negative Sequential Pattern Mining with Loose Negative
           Element Constraints

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Wei Wang, Longbing Cao

      Negative sequential patterns (NSPs) capture more informative and actionable knowledge than classic positive sequential patterns (PSPs) due to the involvement of both occurring and nonoccurring behaviors and events, which can contribute to many relevant applications. However, NSP mining is nontrivial, as it involves fundamental challenges requiring distinct theoretical foundations and is not directly addressable by PSP mining. In the very limited research reported on NSP mining, a negative element constraint (NEC) is incorporated to only consider the NSPs composed of specific forms of elements (containing either positive or negative items), which results in many valuable NSPs being missed. Here, we loosen the NEC (called loose negative element constraint (LNEC)) to include partial negative elements containing both positive and negative items, which enables the discovery of more flexible patterns but incorporates significant new learning challenges, such as representing and mining complete NSPs.

  • Meaningful Answer Generation of E-Commerce Question-Answering

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Shen Gao, Xiuying Chen, Zhaochun Ren, Dongyan Zhao, Rui Yan

      In e-commerce portals, generating answers for product-related questions has become a crucial task. In this article, we focus on the task of product-aware answer generation, which learns to generate an accurate and complete answer from large-scale unlabeled e-commerce reviews and product attributes. However, safe answer problems (i.e., neural models tend to generate meaningless and universal answers) pose significant challenges to text generation tasks, and e-commerce question-answering task is no exception. To generate more meaningful answers, in this article, we propose a novel generative neural model, called the Meaningful Product Answer Generator (MPAG), which alleviates the safe answer problem by taking product reviews, product attributes, and a prototype answer into consideration.

  • Multilingual Review-aware Deep Recommender System via Aspect-based
           Sentiment Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Peng Liu, Lemei Zhang, Jon Atle Gulla

      With the dramatic expansion of international markets, consumers write reviews in different languages, which poses a new challenge for Recommender Systems (RSs) dealing with this increasing amount of multilingual information. Recent studies that leverage deep-learning techniques for review-aware RSs have demonstrated their effectiveness in modelling fine-grained user-item interactions through the aspects of reviews. However, most of these models can neither take full advantage of the contextual information from multilingual reviews nor discriminate the inherent ambiguity of words originated from the user’s different tendency in writing. To this end, we propose a novel Multilingual Review-aware Deep Recommendation Model (MrRec) for rating prediction tasks.

  • Effects of Personalized and Aggregate Top-N Recommendation Lists on User
           Preference Ratings

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Gediminas Adomavicius, Jesse Bockstedt, Shawn Curley, Jingjing Zhang

      Prior research has shown a robust effect of personalized product recommendations on user preference judgments for items. Specifically, the display of system-predicted preference ratings as item recommendations has been shown in multiple studies to bias users’ preference ratings after item consumption in the direction of the predicted rating. Top-N lists represent another common approach for presenting item recommendations in recommender systems. Through three controlled laboratory experiments, we show that top-N lists do not induce a discernible bias in user preference judgments. This result is robust, holding for both lists of personalized item recommendations and lists of items that are top-rated based on averages of aggregate user ratings.

      Abstract: Ryen W. White, Elnaz Nouri, James Woffinden-Luey, Mark EncarnacióN, Sujay Kumar Jauhar

      Information systems, such as task management applications and digital assistants, can help people keep track of tasks of different types and different time durations, ranging from a few minutes to days or weeks. Helping people better manage their tasks and their time are core capabilities of assistive technologies, situated within a broader context of supporting more effective information access and use. Throughout the course of a day, there are typically many short time periods of downtime (e.g., five minutes or less) available to individuals. Microtasks are simple tasks that can be tackled in such short amounts of time. Identifying microtasks in task lists could help people utilize these periods of low activity to make progress on their task backlog.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Maurizio Ferrari Dacrema, Simone Boglio, Paolo Cremonesi, Dietmar Jannach

      The design of algorithms that generate personalized ranked item lists is a central topic of research in the field of recommender systems. In the past few years, in particular, approaches based on deep learning (neural) techniques have become dominant in the literature. For all of them, substantial progress over the state-of-the-art is claimed. However, indications exist of certain problems in today’s research practice, e.g., with respect to the choice and optimization of the baselines used for comparison, raising questions about the published claims. To obtain a better understanding of the actual progress, we have compared recent results in the area of neural recommendation approaches based on collaborative filtering against a consistent set of existing simple baselines.

  • Retrieval Evaluation Measures that Agree with Users’ SERP Preferences:
           Traditional, Preference-based, and Diversity Measures

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Tetsuya Sakai, Zhaohao Zeng

      We examine the “goodness” of ranked retrieval evaluation measures in terms of how well they align with users’ Search Engine Result Page (SERP) preferences for web search. The SERP preferences cover 1,127 topic-SERP-SERP triplets extracted from the NTCIR-9 INTENT task, reflecting the views of 15 different assessors. Each assessor made two SERP preference judgements for each triplet: one in terms of relevance and the other in terms of diversity. For each evaluation measure, we compute the Agreement Rate (AR) of each triplet: the proportion of assessors that agree with the measure’s SERP preference. We then compare the mean ARs of the measures as well as those of best/median/worst assessors using Tukey HSD tests.

  • Toward Dynamic User Intention: Temporal Evolutionary Effects of Item
           Relations in Sequential Recommendation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Chenyang Wang, Weizhi Ma, Min Zhang, Chong Chen, Yiqun Liu, Shaoping Ma

      User intention is an important factor to be considered for recommender systems, which always changes dynamically in different contexts. Recent studies (represented by sequential recommendation) begin to focus on predicting what users want beyond what users like, which are better at capturing user intention and have attracted a surge of interest. However, user intention modeling is non-trivial, because it is generally influenced by various factors, among which item relations and their temporal evolutionary effects are of great importance. For example, consumption of a cellphone will have varying impacts on the demands for its relational items: For complements, the demands are likely to be promoted in the short term; while for substitutes, the long-term effect may take advantage, because users do not need another cellphone immediately.

  • A Critical Reassessment of the Saerens-Latinne-Decaestecker Algorithm for
           Posterior Probability Adjustment

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Andrea Esuli, Alessio Molinari, Fabrizio Sebastiani

      We critically re-examine the Saerens-Latinne-Decaestecker (SLD) algorithm, a well-known method for estimating class prior probabilities (“priors”) and adjusting posterior probabilities (“posteriors”) in scenarios characterized by distribution shift, i.e., difference in the distribution of the priors between the training and the unlabelled documents. Given a machine learned classifier and a set of unlabelled documents for which the classifier has returned posterior probabilities and estimates of the prior probabilities, SLD updates them both in an iterative, mutually recursive way, with the goal of making both more accurate; this is of key importance in downstream tasks such as single-label multiclass classification and cost-sensitive text classification.

      Abstract: Cristina Ioana Muntean, Franco Maria Nardini, Raffaele Perego, Nicola Tonellotto, Ophir Frieder

      We observe that in curated documents the distribution of the occurrences of salient terms, e.g., terms with a high Inverse Document Frequency, is not uniform, and such terms are primarily concentrated towards the beginning and the end of the document. Exploiting this observation, we propose a novel version of the classical BM25 weighting model, called BM25 Passage (BM25P), which scores query results by computing a linear combination of term statistics in the different portions of the document. We study a multiplicity of partitioning schemes of document content into passages and compute the collection-dependent weights associated with them on the basis of the distribution of occurrences of salient terms in documents.
