E-commerce applications rely heavily on session-based recommendation algorithms to improve the shopping experience of their customers. Recent progress in session-based recommendation algorithms shows great promise. However, translating that promise to real-world outcomes is a challenging task for several reasons, but mostly due to the large number and varying characteristics of the available models. In this paper, we discuss the approach and lessons learned from the process of identifying and deploying a successful
session-based recommendation algorithm for a leading e-commerce application in the home-improvement domain. To this end, we initially evaluate fourteen session-based recommendation algorithms in an offline setting using eight different popular evaluation metrics on three datasets
Molham shares some history of relational databases, trends in modern cloud-native database systems, and the innovations pioneered at RelationalAI to bring deep learning with relations from idea to reality.Read More
This incredible panel of experts gathered to discuss the current state of AI and machine learning workloads inside databases. The panel discussed new techniques, technologies, and recent papers that progress our understanding of what is possible. Q&A among the panel and from the audience concludes this deep and wide ranging conversation.Read More
This talk explores several techniques to improve the runtime performance of machine learning by taking advantage of the underlying structure of relational data. While most data scientists use relational data in their work, the data science tooling that works with relational data is quite lacking today. Let’s explore these new techniques and see how we can drastically improve machine learning through a database-oriented lens.Read More
