Building Recommendation Engines
Join us on Fri, Oct 18th @ 6PM in ECS Room 357 for a presentation and workshop on building Recommendation Engines. Duration: 90 minutes.

We are seeing recommendation engines at work everywhere. When we switch on Netflix, the shows that we see on the screen are coming from a recommendation engine. When we search google, the results that come as well as the ads that are displayed are the result of a complex interplay of several recommendation engines. Ashwin Pingali will be talking about the mathematics, algorithms and programming behind recommendation engines. There will be an opportunity for students to get their hands dirty and create a simple recommendation engine using collaborative filter. Please bring your laptops and follow along.
