BDC Learning Track - Studying & Implementing Recommendation Engine Algorithms.

This is a FREE event.

Agenda

06:30 pm - 07:00 pm : Networking over Pizza

07:00 pm - 07:30 pm : Introduction to Recommendation Engines

07:30 pm - 08:00 pm : Form study groups and work

08:00 pm - 08:30 pm : Group sessions and Q/A


First in a series of four weekly sprints, we will be studying and implementing Recommendation Engine algorithms. We will start with Collaborative Filtering and then slowly expand in to other algorithms as well.

We will also be using MongoDB and build a complete recommendation engine using Ruby and a presentation layer using Ruby-on-Rails. There will be four sprints before teams demo their recommendation engines.

In this meetup, we will have an introductory session about Recommendation engines and then form teams of people to work on recommendation engines over the next month (these will be weekly sessions).

Come along for a wonderful journey in to big data, analytics and machine learning!


Third Eye is also running a 1-day training class on May 12th at the same location in Santa Clara:

Recommendation Engines – End-to-End Development & Deployment.
