Ed Tsech: Recommender systems and collaborative filtering

• Introduction to recommender systems, collaborative filtering
• Popular algorithms
• Introduction to Apache Mahout

• Using Mahout from Clojure
• How to check correctness of your solution
• How to add application logic to your Mahout recommender

• Live example (movie recommender based on real data and web interface implemented in Clojure and Mahout)

The talk will be around 60 minutes.

After the talk we will discuss the topic and have office hours. Bring your laptop and set of your questions, problems and projects, you are currently working on. 

(Hopefully) you will be able to find an experienced developer who can answer your question. This can include: setup up your favourite editor for FP language, use of build tools, details of core.async etc. 

Please write below a list of FP related topics you can help others.

    There is an article about Evaluation with Mahout , you can think of it like end to end "testing" or technique for checking preciseness of your recommender.
