A reranking algorithm, Multi-Rerank, is proposed to refine the recommendation list generated by collaborative filtering approaches. Multi-Rerank is capable of capturing multiple self-contained modalities, i.e., item modalities extractable from user-item matrix, to improve recommendation lists. Experimental results indicate that Multi-Rerank is effective for improving various CF approaches and additional benefits can be achieved when reranking with multiple modalities rather than a single modality.
