  • What is the talk about?

    Ameya: Mining data to personalize shopping or browsing is critical for enhancing the user experience. However its challenging enough to build personalized
    content across millions of content choices for one user, let alone scaling this model up to hundreds of millions of users. This talk will cover how you can use open source big data technologies such as Hadoop and HBase to build infrastructure that can personalize real time user experience for web and mobile, and also offline personalization experience such as 'personalized' emails. We will also cover what are some of the challenges in scaling this to hundreds of millions of users. At the end of the talk we will cover small case
    study on how we achieved all of the above at Groupon.
