The 2nd RecSys meetup was held at Sanoma on April 16th, had three invited speakers and was hosted by Sanoma (in their awesome venue on Hoofddorp).
The three speakers, Julian Ortega from SDL, Joaquin Delgado from Verizon, and Nico Schoonderwoerd all spoke about recommender systems, as used by their companies. While Julian’s focus was on how the recommender systems at SDL are implemented and managed, Joaquin spoke of the similarities between ad targeting and recommendation. Nico presented current.ly, the latest product from PeerRech. current.ly recommends tweets based on news trends.
