Delivering personalized recommendations can improve the effectiveness of user satisfaction. To do this, understanding user preference is critical to developing such recommender systems, however, existing studies mainly utilize high-cost devices and high computation in detecting preference. In this work, we propose a multimodal framework in which facial expressions and neural signals are captured by low-cost portable electroencephalography (EEG) devices in identifying a user’s preference. We found that EEG combined with facial behavior features improves the preference detection, specifically whether a user likes or dislikes the given face images in controlled experiments. Further, we introduce a richer set of objective markers leveraging EEG-based neural features and facial behavior markers that contribute to preference detection. We demonstrate the multimodal-based preference detection using the commercialized portable EEG which can provide an efficient way to approach a user's preference detection in designing personalized recommendation systems in real-world settings.
