Currently, ranking has emerged to be a central problem in many fields, and many problems traditionally formulated as rating prediction tasks can be reformulated as ranking problems. In this talk, I will introduce my recent work on the ranking techniques. Firstly, I will introduce the preliminaries, including the problem formulation, representations and basic ranking algorithms. Then secondly, I will provide some application examples to illustrate the advantages of the ranking-oriented algorithms. Finally, I will present the possible research issues in the future.
