Thursday Extra: "What is a good recommendations algorithm?"

On Thursday, April 4, Aditi Roy 2013 will discuss the evaluation of recommendation algorithms:

While designing a recommendation algorithm for Kindle FreeTime Unlimited (a product which serves a subscription containing books, videos and apps to kids), I realized that there were many varied opinions on what the role of a good recommendation algorithm was. This talk will provide an overview of some of the popular approaches and algorithms used in the industry, the metrics used to evaluate recommendation algorithms, and the challenges involved in serving customers good recommendations.

Refreshments will be served at 4:15 p.m. in the Computer Science Commons (Noyce 3817). The talk, “What is a good recommendations algorithm?” will follow at 4:30 p.m. in Noyce 3821. Everyone is welcome to attend!
