"The universe is in our hands" - planetary scale recommendations with CosmosDB, Azure ML and Node.js

Luca Maraschi

In this talk we are going to explore the architecture used to solve a millennial problem, a cooperative filtering (or more Netflix like) recommendation system. With AI and ML being the hottest technologies in the industry, we are going to deep dive into the technical implementation of Azure CosmosDB using the Gremlin API to serve a global scale mobile API, all glued together by Node.js and applying patterns like event sourcing and polyglot persistence.
