Recommender systems are an integral part of eCommerce services, helping to optimize revenue and user satisfaction. Bundle recommendation has recently gained attention by the research community since behavioral data supports that users often buy more than one product in a single transaction. In most cases, bundle recommendations are of the form “users who bought product A also bought products B, C, and D”. Although such recommendations can be useful, there is no guarantee that products A,B,C, and D may actually be related to each other. In this paper, we address the problem of collection recommendation, i.e., recommending a collection of products
that share a common theme and can potentially be purchased to-
gether in a single transaction.

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
