- Eric Mehes, Senior Data Scientist @Ding: Recommender Systems - A Gentle Introduction
Eric Mehes is a former Research Engineer in the Customer Data Platform team at Zalando Dublin. Part of his work consists of implementing and gauging the performance of recommender systems used for personalising & streamlining the experience of Zalando users. His is just starting a new role as Senior Data Scientist in Ding.
The scope of this talk is to give a broad overview over the design of a recommender system, different challenges posed along the way, and ways of determining the efficiency of the chosen recommender. Such systems are used all across the web to personalise the delivery of content to customers. Whether on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Spotify, Netflix, Amazon or Zalando, all the content you observe is filtered and ranked by a recommender engine that was carefully tweaked to give you the content that you are most likely to engage with. Such systems use both explicit feedback mechanisms (likes, upvotes, stars rated, hearts) and implicit ones (time spent looking at content, previously clicked on content, etc), and the content served requires the recommender to be tuned for most use-cases.
Big thanks to Bank of Ireland for hosting us and for sharing their work with all of us.
