Building Recommendation Systems with Python [Video]

More Information
  • Build your own recommendation engine with Python to analyze data
  • Use effective text-mining tools to get the best raw data
  • Master collaborative filtering techniques based on user profiles and the item they want
  • Content-based filtering techniques that use user data such as comments and ratings
  • Hybrid filtering technique which combines both collaborative and content-based filtering
  • Utilize pandas and scikit-learn easy-to-use data structures for data analysis

Recommendation Engines have become an integral part of any application. For accurate recommendations, you require user information. The more data you feed to your engine, the more output it can generate – for example, a movie recommendation based on its rating, a YouTube video recommendation to a viewer, or recommending a product to a shopper online.

In this practical course, you will be building three powerful real-world recommendation engines using three different filtering techniques. You'll start by creating usable data from your data source and implementing the best data filtering techniques for recommendations. Then you will use machine learning techniques to create your own algorithm, which will predict and recommend accurate data.

By the end of the course, you'll be able to build effective online recommendation engines with machine learning and Python – on your own.
