Properties of recommender systems
the student will work on the insight of the way that recommender systems work.
The teaching methodology is divided into three parts, the first is the exposure of theoretical concepts, the second in the visualization of the potential applications and thirdly presenting real case studies in business.
The evaluation of the seminar has three parts. A first case study the issues associated with 1-3 with a weight of 40%, a second case study topics related to 4-9 with 40% and finally a summary of the presentations of companies with 20%.
Interest in business and financial applications from the perspective of AI, especially in recommender systems
