Consideration of Correlation between Users' Evaluating Values and Their Dropouts in Missing Value Prediction
Kenta Nishimura, Toshiyuki Tanaka (Kyoto Univ.)
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In user-item relational data, there are sometimes correlations between values and their dropouts. Existing methods under consideration of such correlations can treat only objective or discrete values, and are unsuited for data of subjective and continuous values in which users’ scale of values may differ. As for the different scales, it is natural to do user normalization, which equalize users’ scales. However, if dropouts correlate with unseen values, we need to accomplish user normalization considering the correlations. Assuming dropouts depend on unseen values, we propose a new user normalization method and collaborative filtering method which can deal with continuous values and which is based on matrix factorizations. As for the latter method, rigorous calculation is intractable, and therefore we also propose an approximate method on the basis of variational Bayesian framework.
