Recommender Systems - Virtual

Ever wondered how Amazon grew from a tiny bookstore in 1994 to the giant it is today? Or how Netflix chooses the next movie for you? In this course we will take a look at the recommender systems that underlie all the successful e-commerce and content enterprises and how you can start implement and optimize these system at your company.

Recommend like a champion

Recommending the relevant item to buy next, or which movie you should watch, makes the difference between a successful and unsuccessful enterprise. Whether because it increases the bottom line or customer engagement, a good recommendation is a recipe for adding real value to your business.

A recommendation is — however — much more than an algorithm: it's a system. Come to this 1-day course to gain experience on Recommender Systems so that you can start recommending relevant items to your customers with confidence!
