Event description

Description

Complimentary data science seminars in small group setting by Byteflow Dynamics, a NYC based data science consultancy.

The seminars will cover topics from a range of industries where data science and AI play a major role in, such as Healthcare, Education, Financial Technology (FinTech), Insurance Technology (InsurTech), and more. Some seminars will focus more on the tools while other will be dedicated more towards the business benefits.


Upcoming event: Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Speaker: Andi Shehu, PhD - Founder & CEO Byteflow Dynamics

Topic: How to build recomender systems

Summary: One of most useful things you can build as a data scientist is recommendation systems, i.e. Netflix/Spotify/Pandora being the obvious ones.

The less obvious ones, especially if you’ve never paid for these features:

* Facebook Ads: if you give facebook a list of customers wha have bought something from you (min of 1000), it’ll go and search for a list of possible new customers.

* LinkedIn Sales Navigator: mostly for B2B sales, it’ll clone profiles of clients whom you have done some work with.

Building one actually doesn’t have to be complicated: just turn things into vectors (vectors can be movie titles; features are extracted from the movie) and take inner products (or cosine similarity) as a measure of distance. If inner product is zero that means that they have nothing in common; inner product closer to one, they are very similar. see blog post: http://www.byteflows.com/blog/2017/12/20/data-science-and-cocktails-recommend-me-a-new-drink-part-1/
