A First Analysis of Meta-Learned Per-Instance Algorithm Selection in Scholarly Recommender Systems

We were accepted for publication at ComplexRec 2019, the third workshop on Recommendation in Complex Scenarios at the 13th ACM Recommender Systems Conference (RecSys 2019) in Copenhagan, Denmark. Abstract. effectiveness of recommender system algorithms varies in different real-world scenarios. It is difficult to choose a best algorithm for a scenario Read more…
