explore_latest_num to inject latest items into recommendation. Also, item labels are helpful to rank new items in recommendation. For example:
explore_latest_num = 10
It means 10 latest items are inserted to recommended items list.
There are two options:
- Insert a read type feedback to Gorse when a item is showed to a user. This is the way the official demo zhenghaoz/gitrec tracks user seen recommendations.
write-backparameter to write back recommendations as read feedbacks to Gorse, eg:
curl -i -H "Accept: application/json" -X GET http://127.0.0.1:8088//api/recommend/0?write-back=read
The 1st option is more accurate since it is done by front end but the 2rd option is more convenient.
