# Interpret results from a lightFM factorization machines

I built a recommendation model on a user-item transactional dataset where each transaction is represented by 1:

model = LightFM(learning_rate=0.05, loss='warp')


Here are the results of this recommendation model:

Train precision at k=3:  0.115301
Test precision at k=3:  0.0209936

Train auc score:  0.978294
Test auc score : 0.810757

Train recall at k=3:  0.238312330233
Test recall at k=3:  0.0621618086561


Can anyone help me interpret this result? How is it that I am getting such good AUC score and such bad precision/recall? The precision/recall gets even worse for 'bpr' Bayesian personalized ranking.

users = [0]
items = np.array([13433, 13434, 13435, 13436, 13437, 13438, 13439, 13440])
model.predict(users, item)


array([-1.45337546, -1.39952552, -1.44265926, -0.83335167, -0.52803332,
-1.06252205, -1.45194077, -0.68543684])


How do I interpret the prediction scores?

Thanks
