In the past years, knowledge graphs have proven to be beneficial for recommender systems, efficiently addressing paramount issues such as new items and data sparsity. At the same time, several works have recently tackled the problem of knowledge graph completion through machine learning algorithms able to learn knowledge graph embeddings. In this paper, we show that the item recommendation problem can be seen as a specific case of knowledge graph completion problem, where the "feedback" property, which connects users to items that they like, has to be predicted. We empirically compare a set of state-of-the-art knowledge graph embeddings algorithms on the task of item recommendation on the Movielens 1M dataset. The results show that knowledge graph embeddings models outperform traditional collaborative filtering baselines and that TransH obtains the best performance.
