recpack.algorithms.TARSItemKNNHermann
- class recpack.algorithms.TARSItemKNNHermann(K: int = 200, decay_interval: int = 1)
Time aware variant of ItemKNN that considers the time between two interactions when computing similarity between two items, as well as the age of an event.

Montgomerie (Eds.), Proceedings of ED-MEDIA 2010–World Conference on Educational Multimedia, Hypermedia & Telecommunications (pp. 1028-1033). Toronto, Canada: Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education (AACE).
Similarity between two items is computed as the avg of \(S_{u,i,j}\) for each user that has seen both items i and j.
\[S_{u,i,j} = \frac{1}{\Delta t_{u,i,j} + \Delta d_{u,i,j}}\]where \(\Delta t_{u,i,j}\) is the distance in time units between the user interacting with item i and j. \(\Delta d_{u,i,j}\) is the maximal distance in time units between a user interactions with i or j to now.
- Parameters
K (int, optional) – Number of neigbours to use per item, make sure to pick a value below the number of columns of the matrix to fit on. Defaults to 200.
decay_interval (int, optional) – Size of a single time unit in seconds. Allows more finegrained parameters for large scale datasets where events are collected over months of data. Defaults to 1 (second).
Methods
fit
(X)Fit the model to the input interaction matrix.
get_params
([deep])Get parameters for this estimator.
predict
(X)Predicts scores, given the interactions in X
set_params
(**params)Set the parameters of the estimator.
Attributes
Name of the object.
Name of the object's class.
- fit(X: Union[recpack.matrix.interaction_matrix.InteractionMatrix, scipy.sparse._csr.csr_matrix]) recpack.algorithms.base.Algorithm
Fit the model to the input interaction matrix.
After fitting the model will be ready to use for prediction.
This function will handle some generic bookkeeping for each of the child classes,
The fit function gets timed, and this will get printed
Input data is converted to expected type using call to
_transform_predict_input()
The model is trained using the
_fit()
method_check_fit_complete()
is called to check fitting was succesful
- Parameters
X (Matrix) – The interactions to fit the model on.
- Returns
self, fitted algorithm
- Return type
- get_params(deep=True)
Get parameters for this estimator.
- Parameters
deep (bool, default=True) – If True, will return the parameters for this estimator and contained subobjects that are estimators.
- Returns
params – Parameter names mapped to their values.
- Return type
dict
- property identifier
Name of the object.
Name is made by combining the class name with the parameters passed at construction time.
Constructed by recreating the initialisation call. Example:
Algorithm(param_1=value)
- property name
Name of the object’s class.
- predict(X: Union[recpack.matrix.interaction_matrix.InteractionMatrix, scipy.sparse._csr.csr_matrix]) scipy.sparse._csr.csr_matrix
Predicts scores, given the interactions in X
Recommends items for each nonzero user in the X matrix.
This function is a wrapper around the
_predict()
method, and performs checks on in- and output data to guarantee proper computation.Checks that model is fitted correctly
checks the output using
_check_prediction()
function
- Parameters
X (Matrix) – interactions to predict from.
- Returns
The recommendation scores in a sparse matrix format.
- Return type
csr_matrix
- set_params(**params)
Set the parameters of the estimator.
- Parameters
params (dict) – Estimator parameters
