Recommendation systems play a vital role in online information systems and are a major monetisation tool for user-oriented platforms. Recently, there has been an increasing research interest in recommendation technology, and significant progress has been made owing to the fast development of neural network techniques.

In this talk, Dr. He will briefly introduce traditional recommendation techniques and emphasise on the emerging neural recommender models. He will cover several advances on feature representation learning models, feature interaction learning models, and adversarial training method.
