Practical Recommender Systems
The book Practical Recommender Systems goes behind the curtain to show you how recommender systems work and, more importantly, how to create and apply them for your site. After you’ve covered the basics of how recommender systems work, you’ll discover how to collect user data and produce personalized recommendations. Next, you’ll learn how and where to use the most popular recommendation algorithms and see examples of them in action on sites like Amazon and Netflix. Finally, this hands-on guide covers scaling problems and other issues you may encounter as your site grows.
Publication is expected in Summer 2016.
