This project aims to systematically study how to meet emerging challenges from “4Vs (Volume, Veracity, Variety, Velocity)” of big data and develop a scalable, robust and real-time recommender system framework in a cost-effective and end-to-end manner. Specifically, our goal consists of four subtasks:
  1. developing a compact latent factor model for scalable recommendation;
  2. developing an anti-shilling model for secure recommendation;
  3. developing a heterogeneous feature embedding and fusion framework to enhance the robustness for cold-start recommendation;
  4. developing a meta learningbased online learning scheme to support streaming recommendation.

A working knowledge of deriving state-of-the-art machine learning approaches for real-world applications and publishing conference/journal papers on prestigious venues would be of benefit to someone working on this project.
