**this is online event, make sure to register here: RSVP: https://learn.xnextcon.com/event/eventdetails/W20071618 We are hosting a free virtual meetup. You can join from anywhere with zoom. In this talk, I will present an overview of recommender systems, including traditional content based and collaborative filtering. I will also touch upon some current trends and breakthroughs in this area. I will then provide an overview of how we develop recommendations here at Etsy. Specifically, I will provide an overview of our journey from linear ranking models to a non- linear deep neural network ranking model, the challenges we faced and the lessons we learnt. I also plan to present our work on a novel custom objective function to build a recommendation model that jointly optimizes both relevance and profit.
This is online tech event, you can join from anywhere with zoom, please register and attend here: https://learn.xnextcon.com/event/eventdetails/W20070910 We are hosting Free half-day online workshop on Explanations and ML Pipelines - ML in Production. Explanations and ML Pipelines - ML in Production Date: Jul. 23rd, 10am PT/1pm ET RSVP: https://learn.xnextcon.com/event/eventdetails/W20070910 In this workshop, we will cover 2 important aspects of applied machine learning systems - Explanations and Machine Learning Pipelines. We will start with a technical talk on Explainable AI and cover the key methods to generate explanations. After the technical talk, we will conduct a hands on workshop where we will cover how to set up ML data and re-training pipelines. We will cover both streaming and batch updates to data and how ML retraining pipelines can be set up to pick up the latest versions of a dataset. We will finish with generating explanations for models.
