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
We defined named entity recognition (NER) in the legal domain and presented our approach towards generating ground truth data. In what follows, we go over the state-of-the-art in the NER domain and elaborate on the experiments we ran and the lessons we learned.Read More
Named entity recognition is a difficult challenge to solve, particularly in the legal domain. Extracting ground truth labels from long, hierarchical documents is often slow and prone to error. RelationalAI proposes a new, scalable algorithm based on the principles of data-centric AI, designed to meet this challenge and generate high-quality annotations with minimal supervision.Read More
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
