• Learning to learn to rank: An Introduction to why one thing comes after another

    Speaker: John Carney, Director of Data Science at PDFTA https://www.linkedin.com/in/john-carney-706b7062/ Topic: Learning to learn to rank: An Introduction to why one thing comes after another Schedule: 6:00pm - 6:30pm - ODSC Intro, Pizza & Refreshments 6:30pm - 7:20pm - Talk 7:20pm - 7:30pm - Q&A 7:30pm - 8:00pm - Networking Bio: John Carney runs PDFTA a Data Science consultancy focused on Recommendation systems, Search Ranking, and Machine Learning in Production. He's a co-organiser of PyData Manchester, he got his Ph.D. thesis title is "Adapting UK winter wheat to predicted climate change scenarios", and he spends a lot of his time frustrated by the Seattle Seahawks and the New York Mets. Abstract: On most e-commerce sites when we search for a product we get a nice list of products, perhaps in the 'recommended' ordering. Why is this done? And more interestingly how? It turns out machine learning has a key role to play. John will be introducing some of the key concepts in learning to rank, how to use them in productions and some of their pitfalls.
