SkillsCast

Graphs for recommendation engines: Looking beyond social, retail, and media

16th July 2019 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Graphs for recommendation engines & taxonomies in the semantic landscape

In this meetup we have two great speakers - Joe Depeau of Neo4j & Helen Lippell who is an Independent Taxonomy Consultant & Chair of Taxonomy Bootcamp.

We’re all familiar with recommendations in a number of different areas of our lives. Recommendations for social media connections, e-commerce products, or streaming media content are ubiquitous. Perhaps less well known are applications for recommendations in different contexts - like education, HR, fraud detection, business process management, or offender rehabilitation. In this talk we will discuss some of these recommendations use cases in more detail, and look at how graph data can be used to model each domain and power a recommendations engine. We’ll also see an example use case demonstrated using Neo4j.
