STEMCasts - Technical Deep Dive - Recommendation Models

Thanks to our excellent student leads, we have a number of deep dive webinars planned to help prepare participants.

Agenda (subject to some changes as material is developed)
Please note that there will be some overlap with the overview STEMCast. If you are fairly new to Machine Learning, watching the overview STEMCast will help you get more out of this deep dive webinar.

  1. What are recommender systems? (Brief definition and some examples on real use cases)

  2. Recommender systems approaches (Mentioning and explaining them briefly).

  3. Content-based recommender systems

What they are? What types are there? When to use them? And how to use them? Pros and Cons and how we can remedy the cons?)

  1. Evaluation metrics.

Including an example, a hands on use case to get familiar with the process

Since we did not get too many replies, we are using our regular 3pm PST slot that seems to work for most folks.

We hope that the folks who entered their availability in the poll can attend. If not, reply to this email and we will see if we can make it up to you!
