With the explosive growth of online information, recommender systems have played a vital role in addressing the information overload problem. Traditional recommendation frameworks designed methods to improve the recommendation accuracy. However, recent challenges of reliable recommender system has attracted more attentions, especially when facing the increasing requirements of reliable and trustworthy AI applications. In this talk, we study knowledge intelligence driven reliable recommendation algorithms, and concentrate on the explainability and robustness of recommender system. First, we investigate the interpretability of recommendation methods, and propose Knowledge Enhanced Graph Neural Networks (KEGNN) for explainable recommendation by leveraging common-sense knowledge to enhance the representation learning of user behaviors and devising a graph neural networks based user behavior learning and reasoning model for comprehensive knowledge reasoning. KEGNN can provide accurate recommendation results with human-like semantic explanations. Second, we leverage the model co-training knowledge to address the extremely serious issues duo to noisy user feedback. A semi-supervised co-training algorithm is devised for denoising learning (SSCDL) in recommender system and makes robust recommendation. SSCDL algorithm has achieved superior performance in both effectiveness and robustness, and had practical usage in DiDi intelligent transportation sector.
