Building Real Time Recommendation Engines
October 10 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
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 behind Recommendation Engines. The talk will be a presentation but attendees can follow the presenter by getting their hands dirty in building a simple recommendation engine that uses a collaborative filter. (The tutorial will show how to Build an actual recommendation engine that makes recommendations for product purchases and movie recommendations.) This presentation will describe how a graph database is useful when it comes to recommendations.
