Talk with Yves Raimond at the GPU Tech Conference on Marth 28, 2018 in San Jose, CA.
In this talk, we will survey how Deep Learning methods can be applied to personalization and recommendations. We will cover why standard Deep Learning approaches don't perform better than typical collaborative filtering techniques. Then we will survey we will go over recently published research at the intersection of Deep Learning and recommender systems, looking at how they integrate new types of data, explore new models, or change the recommendation problem statement. We will also highlight some of the ways that neural networks are used at Netflix and how we can use GPUs to train recommender systems. Finally, we will highlight promising new directions in this space.
