Section 6.9

Mixed Hybrid Recommendation Systems: The basic idea is that we may have to use multiple Recommendation Systems to predict different items and group them together as a package. For example: a tourist itinerary where you get recommended various items in a package like lodging, travelling etc where the recommendation system build for predicting lodging may not be the best one to predict other activities like places to visit etc. The catch here is that because the recommendation systems that predict these things are independent of each other, one needs to make sure you don't predict conflicting items. CSPs(Contraint Satisfaction Problem) are applied to make sure the predictions are mutually consistent.
