We propose an efficient search engine for the solution of the problem, able to produce high-quality and explainable recommendations. The entire framework is designed in a principled and efficient manner, making it ideal for large-scale systems. In a thorough experimental evaluation on real datasets, we illustrate the efficacy of our methods and provide some valuable insight on social endorsement networks. C...
