about the subject

You've seen automated recommendations everywhere—on Netflix's home page, on YouTube, and on Amazon. To accomplish this, machine learning algorithms learn about your unique interests and show the best products or content for you as an individual. These technologies have become central to both prestigious tech employers and enterprises of all sizes, and by understanding how they work, you'll become very valuable to them.

about the video

Learn how to build recommender systems from Frank Kane, one of Amazon's pioneers in the field of ML-based recommender systems. In Building Recommender Systems with Machine Learning and AI, you’ll cover tried and true recommendation algorithms based on neighborhood-based collaborative filtering, and work your way up to more modern techniques such as matrix factorization and even deep learning with artificial neural networks. As you go, you’ll develop your own framework for evaluating and combining many different recommendation algorithms together and build your own neural networks using Tensorflow to generate recommendations from movie ratings data. Along the way, you'll learn from Frank's extensive industry experience to understand the challenges you'll encounter when applying these algorithms at large scale and with real-world data.


For experienced software developers or computer scientists.
