Online AI tech talk: Recommender Systems and Deep Models

**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.
