Meta-path Guided Heterogeneous Graph Neural Network For Dish Recommendation System

The traditional recommendation system can hardly utilize the ingredients and flavor characteristics of the dishes, and faces the problems of sparse data and cold start, resulting in inaccurate results of the recommendation system. This paper addresses these problems by constructing a heterogeneous graph network with the interaction data between users and dishes in the food domain and taking the main and auxiliary ingredients as nodes. Also, we capture the higher-order structural information among users, dishes, and main and auxiliary ingredients by using meta-path guidance. In the meantime, we assign weights to the edges associated with user nodes and main and auxiliary ingredients nodes, which can obtain users’ preferences for main and auxiliary ingredients by using weighted GCN networks. The experiments conducted on a food domain dataset demonstrate that the meta-path-guided heterogeneous graph dish recommendation algorithm proposed in this paper is improved over the traditional recommendation algorithm.
