Data Science Project–Learn to build the Best Recommendation Engine

Data Science Project–Learn to build the Best Recommendation Engine

Any discussion in the world of data science and machine learning is incomplete without the mention of prediction and recommendation engines. Recommendation engines have become the shining star of big data.  Building a recommendation engine is at the heart of modern marketing with user level personalization becoming the secret to success for media and retail business domains. It is extremely important for data scientists to follow the right approach when building a recommendation engine as it is a big investment for any organization both technically and financially.

Data Science Project Problem Statement for WSDM - KKBox's Music Recommendation Challenge

Data Science Projects

With unlimited music streaming services, it has become important to personalize algorithms, however this would be possible only if there is enough historical data. Currently KKBOX uses a collaborative filtering music recommendation engine but aims to employ novel data science techniques which could lead to better results. The new recommendation algorithm would know if a listener likes a new artist or a new song and what kind of song to recommend to brand new users.

Target Audience for the Data Science Project based on the Kaggle Data Science Challenge WSDM - KKBox's Music Recommendation –

  • Data Analysts
  • Data Scientists
  • Individuals who would like to advance their career by building an impressive data science project portfolio.
  • Anybody who wants to enhance their skills on building recommender systems for media industry.
