Will it make any difference?
Are you planning to give more weightage to later ones or so?

I have the same question!
I want to truncate the session data. But don’t know the order

I have the same question!

Based on my local validation, i believe that lower index in the provided prev_items list is older in time. And the larger index in prev_items is newer in time. (Using this assumption results in better CV score).


Thanks! I totally agree with Chris.
I experiment time-weight method in Local Validation.
high index number is better than lower.

also I found this sentence in AIcrowd | Task 1 - Getting Started | Posts
