Have you ever wondered how Amazon.com chooses which products to show you? How Google chooses news articles? How Match.com picks potential dates, Netflix suggests a movie, and Zagat a place for dinner?
The answer lies in Recommender Systems, software systems that provide personalization by learning the preferences of individuals and whole populations.
University of Minnesota Professor of Computer Science & Engineering, Joseph Konstan (@jkonstan) (http://konstand.umn.edu) will provide a quick (and entertaining!) introduction to Recommender Systems. How they work. How people react to them. And how to design them to achieve both your goals and the goals of your customers.
