Abstract

With pervasive digitization, two trends are emerging. One is the proliferation of choices in our consumption of both physical and digital goods and services.
The other is the “datafication” of our behaviors, whereby users’ preferences increasingly manifest through multiple modalities of preference signals, e.g., consumptions, ratings, reviews, networks, images.
These trends point to the opportunity for AI-aided decision making that leverages machine learning to customize user experiences.
In this talk, we provide an overview of our research in leveraging multimodal preference signals towards realizing several stages of a recommendation framework, including preference elicitation and modeling, as well as recommendation delivery.
