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 and software programming 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. This presentation will describe how a graph database is useful when it comes to recommendations. Just bring your laptop and follow along and learn the mathematics, algorithms and programming that powers the ubiquitous recommendation engines. Pizza and drinks will be served.
