Attributes

public MapField<string, CustomAttribute> Attributes { get; }

Highly encouraged. Extra product attributes to be included. For example, for products, this could include the store name, vendor, style, color, etc. These are very strong signals for recommendation model, thus we highly recommend providing the attributes here.

Features that can take on one of a limited number of possible values. Two types of features can be set are:

Textual features. some examples would be the brand/maker of a product, or country of a customer. Numerical features. Some examples would be the height/weight of a product, or age of a customer.
