Overview (from LSF)

Learning Content

In this course we elaborate on the role of recommenders as a primary means of improving a user's or customer's experience, while increasing company revenue. The course covers learning methods for the recommender core, approaches for the design and evaluation of recommenders, and specific application areas of recommenders.

This course is a followup of the bachelor course CRM/RecSys, which contains an introduction to Customer Relationship Management and to Recommendation Engines, including two core methods for model learning (collaborative filtering and content-based modeling) and basics on evaluating recommenders. In this course, we consider advanced learning methods and advanced instruments for guaranteeing the goodness of the recommender core.
