Abstract : Top-N recommendations are widely applied in various real life domains and keep attracting intense attention from researchers and industry due to available multi-type information, new advances in AI models and deeper understanding of user satisfaction.While accuracy has been the prevailing issue of the recommendation problem for the last decades, other facets of the problem, namely diversity and explainability, have received much less attention. In this paper, we focus on enhancing diversity of top-N recommendation, while ensuring the trade-off between accuracy and diversity. Thus, we propose an effective framework DivKG leveraging knowledge graph embedding and determinantal point processes (DPP). First, we capture different kinds of relations among users, items and additional entities through a knowledge graph structure. Then, we represent both entities and relations as k-dimensional vectors by optimizing a margin-based loss with all kinds of historical interactions. We use these representations to construct kernel matrices of DPP in order to make top-N diversified predictions. We evaluate our framework on MovieLens datasets coupled with IMDb dataset. Our empirical results show substantial improvement over the state-of-the-art regarding both accuracy and diversity metrics.
