Implicit feedback is user activity that can be used to indirectly infer user preferences, e.g. clicks, page views, purchase actions. Sometimes only positive feedback is known, e.g. the products customers have bought, but not the ones they have decided against.

Prediction from Implicit Feedback

Prediction from implicit feedback (implicit feedback ranking) refers to the task that ranks a list of item so that the items user prefer (more likely to click, view etc.) will be in higher order.

Using Implicit Feedback

Implicit feedback information can be used to enhance collaborative filtering algorithms for rating prediction. The most famous example is SVD++
