The available recommender algorithms all leverage past behavior. However, if you have a small amount of it, you can augment your recommendations by using other information you have about your items and your users. Check out the documentation for the user_side_data and item_side_data arguments in <a href="">graphlab.recommender.create</a>. You can also read more about this in the <a href="">recommender section of the user guide</a>.

If you have more questions, please let us know. Chris
