September 25th meetup: Registrations opened

Save the date.

We’ll have another RecsysFR session on September 25th at 19:00.

The meetup will be hosted by TinyClues.

We’ll start with an introduction word by TinyClues. We’ll then continue with three talks:

Artem Kozhevnikov – Tinyclues
Predictive quality metrics @ tinyclues
Artem Kozhevnikov, lead Data Scientist, will present some quality metrics commonly followed @ tinyclues in order to evaluate the model predictive power. Those metrics are going beyond well known technical metrics like AUC or RMSE and seem to be important in the context of CRM campaigns targeting.

Enno Shioji – Adform
Use of feature embeddings in advertisement
Feature embeddings, especially pre-trained feature embeddings can be a very useful tool in the context of RTB. We will discuss different ways of using them, with emphasis on engineering implications. This will include RNN, Wide & Deep Learning, and a “hacky” way of mimicking the effect of Wide & Deep Learning.

Reco team – Criteo
Highlights on most interesting RecSys papers
RecSys conference was held in Como at the end of August. We will summarize for you the most trendy techniques and results presented at this conference.

The talks will be followed by a casual networking time over food and drinks.
