Talk about Recommender Systems!

Hi all, thanks for joining the group. We are planning our first meetup for *Feb 8th* @ 6pm (note revised date), with a couple of interesting presentations about recommender systems followed by a trip down to the local pub.

Confirmed Speakers:

1. Gavin Potter (a.k.a. "Just a guy in a garage," a mathematical psychologist working on recommender systems)

2. Sean Owen (Apache Mahout committer who wrote most of the recommender implementations there)

ps: If you have seen a previous message like this one, please note that we have changed the date of the meeting to Feb 8th (instead of Feb 1st). Thanks to Dan for pointing out a clash with the Machine Learning meeting on the Feb 1st.

UPDATE (1 Feb): Two copies of Mahout in Action ( will be raffled off to lucky attendants. Thanks Sean!

    This was an excellent meetup, with great speakers, a good venue, and really interesting people. I learnt a great deal, both from the talks, and from the conversations afterwards. The format was particularly good, with two 30 minute talks followed by the pub!
