Consider a platform for content recommendation based on the user history. The contents are books and articles and by history I mean what the user has read, what he has shared and so on. I know that there are many studies on how to train a recommendation system, however I don't know what to do to "start" (the platform has not been launched yet and the dataset is empty). Are there techniques that consider an initialization phase where no data is available?
