    Recommendation Systems from A to Z

    Radik Komarnitsky and Dana Kaner / Taboola

    Recommendation systems have become an integral part of our lives during the past years: from the music we hear, the movies we watch, the news we read or even the people we're friends with. Since the Netflix prize challenge, the field has witnessed a major boost, offering some new and exciting approaches.
    Today, we will give an overview of these approaches, starting with collaborative filtering, continuing with factorization machines and finally diving into deep learning implementations. We will discuss the challenges we encountered and the lessons we have learned from implementing a deep learning recommendation system in Taboola.
    Following this overview, we will guide you through a hands-on workshop where you will practice TensorFlow and build a fully working recommendation system on your own!

    Deep learning techniques for recommendation

    Oren Sar-Shalom / Intuit

    Deep learning has pushed the state-of-the-art results in various disciplines, such as computer vision, natural language processing and recommendation.
    In this workshop we will demonstrate how recurrent neural nets can be used to model the evolving user preferences. We will also show how recurrent neural nets can be used to capture temporal aspects in a user session.
