Session-based recommendation (SBRS) aims to make recommendations for users merely based on the ongoing session. Existing GNN-based methods achieve satisfactory performance by exploiting the pair-wise item transition pattern; however, they ignore the temporal evolution of the session graphs over different time-steps. Moreover, the widely applied cross-entropy loss with softmax in SBRS faces the serious overfitting problem. To deal with the above issues, we propose dynamic graph learning for session-based recommendation (DGL-SR). Specifically, we design a dynamic graph neural network (DGNN) to simultaneously take the graph structural information and the temporal dynamics into consideration for learning the dynamic item representations. Moreover, we propose a corrective margin softmax (CMS) to prevent overfitting in the model optimization by correcting the gradient of the negative samples. Comprehensive experiments are conducted on two benchmark datasets, that is, Diginetica and Gowalla, and the experimental results show the superiority of DGL-SR over the state-of-the-art baselines in terms of [email protected]
