The future of visual RecSys is an exciting one. Let us explore some of the most cutting edge techniques and ideas that we can incorporate into our recommenders.
Style2Vec (2017) — Combining Multiple Convolutional Neural Networks
The authors “propose Style2Vec, a vector representation model for fashion items. Based on the intuition of distributional semantics used in word embeddings, Style2Vec learns the representation of a fashion item using other items in matching outfits as context. Two different convolutional neural networks are trained to maximize the probability of…
