Subject [jira] [Commented] (SYSTEMML-1437) Implement and scale Factorization Machines using SystemML
Date Mon, 22 May 2017 17:57:04 GMT


Nakul Jindal commented on SYSTEMML-1437:

Hi [~anantbietec], unfortunately this project wasn't accepted by GSoC 2017 (as I pointed out
to Janardhan).
We encourage you, however, to work on this project, if you really are interested and can spare
the time. Since this isn't a GSoC project, I don't think there is any sort of monetary compensation
If the part about contributing to open source interests you, you can work on this project
as a contributor. You can use either this JIRA or the mailing list to discuss your ideas and
then open a Pull Request to facilitate further discussion.

> Factorization Machines have gained popularity in recent years due to their effectiveness
in recommendation systems. FMs are general predictors which allow to capture interactions
between all features in a features matrix. The feature matrices pertinent to the recommendation
systems are highly sparse. SystemML's highly efficient distributed sparse matrix operations
can be leveraged to implement FMs in a scalable fashion. Given the closed model equation of
FMs, the model parameters can be learned using gradient descent methods.
> This project aims to implement FMs as described in the first paper:
> We'll showcase the scalability of SystemML implementation of FMs by creating an end-to-end
recommendation system.
> Basic understanding of machine learning and optimization techniques is required. Will
need to collaborate with the team to resolve scaling and other systems related issues.
> Rating: Medium
