Abstract

Recommender system explanations have been widely studied in the
context of recommending individual items to users. In this paper,
we present and evaluate explanations for the more complex problem
of package recommendation, where a combination of items that go
well together are recommended as a package. We report the results
of an empirical user study where participants try to select the most
appropriate combination of a “top” (e.g. a shirt) and a “bottom”
(e.g. a pair of trousers) for a hypothetical user based on one of
5 types of explanation communicating item-feature preferences
and/or appropriateness of feature combinations. We found that
the type of explanation significantly impacted decision time and
resulted in selection of different packages, but found no difference
in how participants appraised the different explanation types.
