Building Real Time Recommendation Engines – Presentation and hands-on
October 18 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Co-sponsored by: Amit Gupta
We are seeing recommendation engines at work everywhere. When we switch on Netflix, the shows that we see on the screen are coming from a recommendation engine. When we search google, the results that come as well as the ads that are displayed are the result of a complex interplay of several recommendation engines.
In this presentation we will look at the mathematics, algorithms and programming behind Recommendation Engines. The talk will be a presentation and attendees are encouraged to follow the presenter by getting their hands dirty in building a simple recommendation engine that uses a collaborative filter. This presentation will describe how a graph database is useful when it comes to recommendations.
Please come and join us, learn the mathematics and programming that powers the ubiquitous recommendation engines.
