With the progress in time, we do not have to rely on crystal balls any more to predict the future, we have data! Recommender systems or Recommendation Engines serve as the modern-day crystal balls, with the exception that all of the predictions made by them are backed by data!
Recommender Systems also perform the task of filtering, prioritizing and efficiently delivering relevant information in order to alleviate the problem of information overload, which has created a potential problem to many users.
With all these advantages, Recommendation Engines are very common these days and can be applied in almost every field.
Packt’s Video Learning Paths are an amalgamation of multiple video courses that are logically tied together to provide you with a larger learning curve.
In this Learning Path, you will be introduced to what a recommendation engine is and its applications. You will then learn to build recommender systems by using popular frameworks such as R and Python.
The latter part of the Learning Path will deal with various complex recommendation engines such as personalized recommendation engines, real-time recommendation engines, and SVD recommender systems. You will also get a quick glance into the future of recommendation systems.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to build efficient recommendation engines by following the best practices.
For this Learning Path, we have taken two video courses both authored by Suresh Kumar Gorakala.
Suresh Kumar Gorakala is a Data scientist focused on Artificial Intelligence. He has professional experience close to 10 years, having worked with various global clients across multiple domains and helped them in solving their business problems using Advanced Big Data Analytics. He has extensively worked on Recommendation Engines, Natural language Processing, Advanced Machine Learning, and Graph Databases. He previously co-authored Building a Recommendation System with R for Packt Publishing. He is a passionate traveler and is a photographer by hobby.
