Emeka Boris Ama (~emeka)




For a website, knowing what a person needs, wants, and would want is not just a nice-to-have feature but a growing must-have. Today, recommendation systems suggest products, films/shows, music, friends/dates, etc., and it works by finding similar items to a given item or user. For that, each item first needs to be quantified and represented in a way that allows comparison against each other. In his workshop, I will begin with the origins of recommendation systems, discuss how they are built, and where they are today. also, i will review the tools and techniques used to build a recommender, and attendees will understand what type of data is necessary and will get a sense of what would make an effective recommender
