News Topic Recommendation using an extended Bayesian Personalized Ranking

Bayesian Personalized Ranking (BPR) is a famous recommendation approach which learns to rank items based on one-class implicit feedback. In this study I use an extended version of BPR using consumption behavior of users on news article to recommend news topic. The extended version performs better compare to the original version of BPR.
