REVEAL@RecSys2020: Workshop on Bandit and Reinforcement Learning from User Interactions

State-of-the-art recommender systems are notoriously hard to design and improve upon, due to their interactive and dynamic nature. In particular, they involve a multi-step decision-making process, where a stream of interactions occurs between the user and the system. Leveraging reward signals from these interactions and creating a scalable and performant recommendation inference model is a Read more…
