-- Example

- Collaborative Filtering (CF) Recommenders

-- Philosophy & Design Approach

--- Implicit vs Explicit Rating

-- Building a CF RS (code & math)

-- Methods of CF: Memory Based, Model Based

-- Example

- When is a RS considered successful?

-- Accuracy isn't everything

- Hybrid RS

• What to bring

Nothing planned at this time.

• Important to know

I plan to make this presentation accessible to as wide of an audience as possible. Those with little to no background in mathematics or machine learning should be able to follow along quite easily.
