We propose a model to infer a user's preference ranking over musicians from a sparse set of pairwise preferences of the form ``user k prefers artist i over artist j''. The goal is to approximate the data with a low-rank factor model using canonical tensor decomposition. A user-specific pairwise preference is modelled as the sign of a 3-way tensor inner product of latent factor vectors associated with the user and the two musicians being compared. The latent factors are learned using mean-field variational inference and can be used to predict all missing preference pairs. We validate our approach on a real data set of 80M pairwise preferences aggregated from the interaction of 200K users with an online radio
