Improving Recommender Systems with Deep Learning
Deep learning is among the hottest topics in data science today. However, it is still unclear how most businesses can actually apply deep learning to real problems. In this session, we will go beyond the buzzword and share a concrete example of where deep learning has been successfully implemented as part of a productionised recommender system. You will learn how Dataiku improved an online vacation retailer’s recommender system by leveraging pre-trained deep learning models to derive user preference information from images. This transfer learning approach can enable companies to use state-of-the-art machine learning methods without having deep learning expertise.
