Recommendation Systems, though commonly seen, are among the challenging aspects of Predictive Analytics and Big Data Platforms/Solutions. Various Algorithms are used to build the products to which Recommendation Systems are applied, and there is always buzz in regard to the various schemes employed.
This session brings more science to the art, laying the foundation of starting off a Recommendation Platform at a higher ground rather than from scratch. We’ll discuss the ML algorithms that should be applied to various use cases, and the architecture of a Recommendation Platform on Hadoop—including ETL/Data Pipeline, Feature Generation, Model Generation, Recommendation Server, A/B testing, Reporting and Tracking. We’ll also review the various patterns of recommendation use cases and the ML algorithms that apply to them.
