Hyunsik Jeon
Postoctoral Researcher at UC San Diego

I am currently a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering at University of California San Diego, where I am working with Prof. Julian McAuley. I received my Ph.D. and M.Sc. from the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering at Seoul National University, where I was advised by Prof. U Kang. I obtained my B.Sc. from the Dept. of Computer Science and Engineering at Hanyang University. My research interests lie in enhancing recommender systems, with a focus on more accurate, fair, and interactive recommendation solutions.

    Jongjin Kim, Hyunsik Jeon, Jaeri Lee, and U Kang
    PAKDD 2023, Osaka, Japan
    [paper / arxiv / code / bib]

    When recommending personalized top-k items to users, how can we recommend the items diversely to them while satisfying their needs? We propose DivMF which recommends top-k items to users, accurately and aggregately diversely.

    clean-usnob Accurate Bundle Matching and Generation via Multitask Learning with Partially Shared Parameters
    Hyunsik Jeon, Jun-Gi Jang, Taehun Kim, and U Kang
    PLOS ONE (2023)
    [paper / arxiv / code / bib]

    Given item and bundle purchase histories of users, how can we match existing bundles to the users and generate new bundles for them? We propose BundleMage which matches existing bundles and generates personalized bundles simultaneously.
