Using contextual information in music playlist recommendations
Rights accessOpen Access
Recommender Systems have become a fundamental part of various applications supporting users when searching for items they could be interested in, at a given moment. However, the majority of Recommender Systems generate isolate item recommendations based mainly on user-item interactions, without taking into account other important information about the recommendation moment, able to deliver users a more complete experience. In this paper, a hybrid Case-based Reasoning model generating recommendations of sets of music items, based on the underlying structures found in previous playlists, is proposed. Furthermore, the described system takes into account the similarity of the basic contextual information of the current and the past recommendation moments. The initial evaluation shows that the proposed approach may deliver recommendations of equal and higher accuracy than some of the widely used technique
