Partner Webinar: Recommendation Engines with MongoDB and Hadoop
April 15, 2014
Personalized recommendations drive business, helping people find the products they want, the news they need, and the music they didn't know they would love. Despite the obvious advantages, many companies either don't have recommendations or don't leverage their data to make good ones. Too many recommendation engines are black-box algorithms that are hard to change or don't scale well. Using the same recommendation techniques as used at StubHub, Viacom, and AP, this technical webinar will show you how to load your data from MongoDB into Hadoop, generate recommendations, and then put those recommendations into MongoDB, ready to serve end-users. This webinar will prepare you to build a custom recommender for your company that is highly scalable, easy to understand, and built on open-source technology.
