The Big Data Week brings together a global community of data enthusiasts. During the Berlin Event 2013 plista is organizing a Recommender Challenge Hackathon.
The challenge focuses on recommending news articles in real-time. Participants will have the chance to directly interact with our real-time recommender system. The challenge itself will last for the whole big data week, so you are able to tweak your setup and improve performance levels. The winner will be announced at the end of the week.
All people interested in a real recommender system can join us for free pizza, mate and beer. Lets hack on recommender problems and beat the other algorithm teams.
We have prototypes for java, python and php and can provide virtual machines close to our edge locations.
