Subject Orange Labs is hosting an event about recommendation engines - March 3rd
Date Wed, 25 Feb 2009 19:28:04 GMT

Hadoop fellows,

Orange Labs is hosting a forum about Recommendation Engines (not limited to video) in our
South San Francisco lab.
We are now looking for more people interested in bringing their own experience and perspective
to the discussion.

I am sure there are interesting things to learn from the Hadoop crowd processing data for
recommendation purpose, and show what a large scale middleware can bring to the picture.

It's on March 3rd at 4pm. It's free. We expect between 40-50+ people hopefully.
The format is a few short presentations of key speakers and mostly open discussions. 

If interested, drop me an email with your company name and what's your interest on the topic.
I copy below the event description.

Sorry for the spam
(I'll spam also the mahout list btw...)

Come and exchange with Netflix, Clerkdogs, Baynote, Modista and more... Orange Labs Presents:
Recommendation Services Spotlight.
Tuesday, March 03, 2009 from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM (PT)
South San Francisco, CA

Recommendations are driving everything from what you watch on TV to what shoes you're wearing.
Recommendation technologies are an area of intense interest for us here at Orange Labs San
Francisco, and we want to hear what you are thinking about this topic. 

We are convening a forum for exploring the latest trends and developments in the recommendations
space, with leading thinkers such as Andreas Weigend (ex Amazon Chief Scientist), and companies
such as Netflix, Baynote, Modista and Clerkdogs in what promises to be a fascinating domain

If you are a practitioner, or have an active interest in recommendations solutions, please
join us for an interactive discussion on this exciting topic. Space is limited and priority
will be given to active participants and researchers pursuing projects in this domain. 
As an integrated operator with over 100 million customers for mobile, Internet, and TV services,
Orange has an active development program in recommendations technologies, and participants
in this Spotlight can expect to interact with Orange investigators currently working on video
recommendations and related problems. Join the discussion!

Doors open at 4:00pm
Discussions start at 4:30pm
