Welcome to RS_c, the central platform for the RecSys community. We provide curated lists of recommender-systems datasets, algorithms, books, conferences and many resources more. Maybe most importantly, we publish the latest recommender-system news. If you want your news to be reported on RS_c, read here.
This is big news for the recommender-system community: Maciej Kula and James Chen from Google Brain announceTensorFlow Recommenders (TFRS), an official recommender-systems package for TensorFlow, the major deep-learning library.
Today, we’re excited to introduce TensorFlow Recommenders (TFRS), an open-source TensorFlow package that makes building, evaluating, and serving sophisticated recommender models easy. Built with TensorFlow 2.x, TFRS makes it possible to:
TFRS is based on TensorFlow 2.x and Keras, making it instantly familiar and user-friendly. It is modular by design (so that you can easily customize individual layers and metrics), but still forms a cohesive whole (so that the individual components work well together). Throughout the design of TFRS, we’ve emphasized flexibility and ease-of-use: default settings should be sensible; common tasks should be intuitive and straightforward to implement; more complex or custom recommendation tasks should be possible.
