The next Machine Learning Dublin Meetup will take place on 30th April 2018 at Zalando Dublin, 3 Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2, Ireland from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. I am one of the three presenters:

  1. Joeran Beel, Assistant Professor at ADAPT Centre
    The Potential of Meta Recommender-Systems at Macro- and Micro Level
    We introduce the concept of “macro” and “micro” recommender systems. Both systems can be considered as meta recommender systems for recommendation algorithms. A macro recommender system recommends the potentially best performing recommendation algorithm to an organization that wants to build a recommender system. This way, an organization does not need to test dozens or even more algorithms to find the best one for their particular platform. A micro recommender system recommends the potentially best-performing algorithm for each individual recommendation request. This concept is based on the premise that there is no single-best algorithm for all type of users, items, and contexts.

    The personalisation of the Zalando Web Experience using customer data in real time with Cassandra and Flink
  3. Alice Lynch, Research Engineer / Data Scientist @ Customer Data Platform, Zalando
    Predicting Customer Spend Behaviour for Personalisation of the Zalando Web Experience using SparkML

Zalando opens at 18:00 for networking and registration (pre-registration at the Meetup web page is required I believe). At 18:30, the organizers of the meetup will begin with an introduction and welcome note. At 18:40 the three presenters will start and from around 20:00 to 21:00 there will be time for networking and discussions.
