Gourav Sengupta said this session was: "A roller coaster ride on Mahout, funny, fantastic, and intellectually stimulating"

Well... one thing is for sure: the notoriously random book lottery did work this time!

Here are the presentations and some support materials:

1) Scientific Article Recommendation with Mahout by Kris Jack, PhD Sr. Data Mining Engineer at Mendeley

2) Super-Fast Clustering Report in MapR by Ted Dunning Architect at MapR and support materials

R simulation of the Bayesian Bandit algorithm by Ted Dunning (video)

Surprise and Coincidence - Musings from the long tail: Bayesian Bandits ( blog post)

3) Simple Matrix Factorization for Recommendation in Mahout by Sean Owen Founder at Myrrix

4) Going Real-Time with Mahout by Michael Cutler CTO at Tumra

Michael has written a beautiful blog post that elaborates in depth on his presentation. Highly recommended

Also highly recommended, check out the live demo Predicting Facebook users gender (original presentation included too)


Thanks to all who attended the session. Sorry that some people couldn't make it due to busy agenda.

Enjoy the presentations!
