    Although CF methods also have some explainability available. CF library which I used a lot in my past projects, e.g. has the method model.explain available for that.
  • Tensorflow Recommender (TFRS) or Scikit-Surprise?

    In that case, you are doing some form of collaborative filtering, though you can also add content-based filtering as additional features later. You can use either implicit or explicit feedback. I would suggest checking this package, and this tutorial. Let me know if you have any other questions.
