Going to Scipy 2011 Conference present about Recommender Systems

Thursday, July 7, 2011

Hi all,

I am glad to announce that I am going to present a talk at the Scipy Conference 2011 about Python for Recommender Systems. Since 2010 I've been developing a framework for building and evaluating customized recommender systems using Python scientific packages such as Scipy, Numpy and MatPlotLib. 

The framework is called Crab and it is currently being rewritten for supporting more recommender algorithms and a deployable suite for developers who wants to employ the recommender at your applications.   Further information about the framework can be found at this link and this link.

I am quite excited to join this conference since it is my first international talk, but I am confident about the feedback that I will get from another machine learning developers and scientists!

All the schedule for the event can be found here. There will be awesome lectures, tutorials, paper presentations and even coding sprints! :D 

My goals there is to know more people from this area, keep in touch with several developers interested in recommender systems and  learn more about Numpy, Scipy and handling with large datasets.  If you are going to attend, please let me know! Send me a tweet (for @marcelcaraciolo). 

Scipy 2011 Conference

The conference will be at Austin, Texas the city famous as the Live Music Capital of the world and of course by its barbecues! By the way, if you have any doubts about Scipy, numpy or scientific python packages, please comment with your question and I will try to ask the developers there!

PS: The paper related to my work will be published soon here at my blog.
