# Recommender class for Probabilistic Collaborative Representation Learning (PCRL)
[docs]class PCRL(Recommender): """Probabilistic Collaborative Representation Learning. Parameters ---------- k: int, optional, default: 100 The dimension of the latent factors. z_dims: Numpy 1d array, optional, default: [300] The dimensions of the hidden intermdiate layers 'z' in the order \ [dim(z_L), ...,dim(z_1)], please refer to Figure 1 in the orginal paper for more details. max_iter: int, optional, default: 300 Maximum number of iterations (number of epochs) for variational PCRL. batch_size: int, optional, default: 300 The batch size for SGD. learning_rate: float, optional, default: 0.001 The learning rate for SGD. aux_info: see "cornac/examples/" in the GitHub repo for an example of how to use \ cornac's graph module provide item auxiliary data (e.g., context, text, etc.) for PCRL. name: string, optional, default: 'PCRL' The name of the recommender model. trainable: boolean, optional, default: True When False, the model is not trained and Cornac assumes that the model already \ pre-trained (Theta, Beta and Xi are not None). w_determinist: boolean, optional, default: True When True, determinist wheights "W" are used for the generator network, \ otherwise "W" is stochastic as in the original paper. init_params: dictionary, optional, default: {'G_s':None, 'G_r':None, 'L_s':None, 'L_r':None} List of initial parameters, e.g., init_params = {'G_s':G_s, 'G_r':G_r, 'L_s':L_s, 'L_r':L_r}, \ where G_s and G_r are of type csc_matrix or np.array with the same shape as Theta, see below). \ They represent respectively the "shape" and "rate" parameters of Gamma distribution over \ Theta. It is the same for L_s, L_r and Beta. Theta: csc_matrix, shape (n_users,k) The expected user latent factors. Beta: csc_matrix, shape (n_items,k) The expected item latent factors.
