Dear Colleague,
REMINDER - AAi Public Short Course - 'Recommendation Systems - an Introduction' -  Thursday 3 April 2014
AA's short course  'Recommendation Systems - an Introduction' may be of interest to you or others in your organisation or network.

*         Have you ever been amazed that the products an online retailer suggested to you are just what you want to buy? Do you know what tricks are played in the background to enable such intelligent recommendations? These intelligent recommendations are due to the recommender system

*         Nowadays, the mainstream technology for personalized recommendation is collaborative filtering (CF). Collaborative filtering is a computational approach, which predicts a user's preference of an item by finding like-minded users based on their historical records

*         To introduce this rising technology to a broad audience from academics and industries, we propose a one-day short course, including four sessions: 1) Overview, 2) Techniques, 3) Challenges, and 4) Case studies and lab exercises.
This program is particularly useful for:
All those involved in BIG DATA for their organisation:
