Recommendation Engines using Machine Learning, and JRuby

A session at Ruby Midwest 2011

Saturday 5th November, 2011

1:15pm to 1:45pm (CST)

Ever wonder how netflix can predict what rating you would give to a movie? How do recommendation engines get built?

Well, it's possible with JRuby and it's fairly straight forward. Many engines are built purely on support vector machine regressions which map arrays of data onto a classifier, like a star.
In this talk I'll explain how support vector machines are built, and how do make a simple movie prediction model all in JRuby.
