Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR FLEXIBLY USING TRENDING TOPICS AS PARAMETERS FOR RECOMMENDING MEDIA ASSETS THAT ARE RELATED TO A VIEWED MEDIA ASSET
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided herein for flexibly using trending topics as parameters for recommending media assets that are related to a viewed media asset. A media guidance application may determine that a user has viewed a media asset. The media guidance may identify a plurality of attributes corresponding to the viewed media asset and determine that a respective attribute of the plurality of attributes matches a trending topic. The media guidance application may update a set of weightings corresponding to the plurality of attributes by increasing a weighting corresponding to the respective attribute and adjust a recommendation for a media asset different from the viewed media asset based on the updated set of weightings. The media guidance application may generate for display the recommendation of the media asset different from the viewed media asset.
